As Above, So Below is a two-channel HD video installation with sound that uses everyday objects to depict parallels between the cosmic and subatomic realms. The piece draws from the notion of macrocosm/microcosm as originated by the 16th century theologian Robert Fludd. Macrocosm and microcosm are terms from religious esotericism that refer to a vision of the cosmos reflected within a smaller part of itself.
As Above, So Below illustrates the concept with materials such as aluminum foil, coffee grounds, and Styrofoam to draw parallels between micro and macro – the commonplace and the divine.
