In august 2007 astronomers from University of Minnesota discovered an amazing and disturbing spot in the Universe. They found an area in space that is absolutely empty. An d it is so big that it´s almost beyond imagination; 1 billion lightyears across, empty of both normal matter like stars, galaxies, gas, and the unseen “dark matter”. 

Another group of astronomers tried to confirm the finding, but by using a different way of calculating the readings.  And they claimed the discovery was not true. So the first scientists found a lot of nothing in space, and the second group of scientits said there Breitling replica watches was no nothing there. But it will probably take some time before the truth is found. 


A white sculptural shape was constructed with a particular size related to the size off the exhibition hall in which it was being presented. 


The white form had the same relative size to the exhibition hall, as the discovered hole in space had to the size of the visible universe. Press texts from newsblogs on the internet, about the discovery, were placed on the floor using white adhesive let- 

ters. The differentiating views were presented as exerpts of press releases or interviews from the Internet.
