Molecular clouds in space – Ryoichi Kurokawa’s ‘unfold’ at FACT

Currently showing at Liverpool's FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology) is the UK premiere of a new work by the acclaimed Japanese artist Ryoichi Kurokawa. The solo exhibition features the stunning constrained surface (2015) and the premiere of unfold, a new project exploring data related to the giant molecular clouds that form stars (aka stellar nurseries) as visual and sonic environments.

Astrophysicists at the Research Institute into the Fundamental Laws of the Universe (CEA Irfu, Paris-Saclay) have granted Kurokawa unique access to data which may hold the secrets behind the creation of the universe. Using these previously undocumented findings, Kurokawa has developed a new body of work, unfold, that explores the birth and evolution of stars offering viewers an artistic representation of how the solar system was born and how galaxies may have evolved.
