Isaac and Clio

Isaac and Clio: Misadventures in History and Gravity

(2009)

 

 

A series of 200 pairs of images in which the artist attempts to recreate the fabled moment when Sir Isaac
Newton discovers the law of gravity when an apple lands on his head.

In this iteration the Muse of epic
history, Clio, deliberately drops the apple on his head. Each pair of images is a unique attempt to capture the
exact moment just before the apple strikes Newton's head and generates inspiration.

The number of pairs
exhibited is determined by the size of the given space.
