Concept:

55.845u is the mass of an iron atom in atomic mass units, which is equivalent to 0.0000000000000092732796 grams. These figures make us think that the iron alloys with its application, to which we are all accustomed and which are widely used in everyday life, hide under a whole universe where the laws of nature can not be intuitively understood by human. Audio-visual installation 55.845u explores the beauty of the microcosm, which is home to the very atoms of iron, and aims to draw the attention of viewers to the huge difference between macro and micro universe, a special aesthetics which determines the physics of elementary particles.
