Specific Gravity - MOANA Project Space (May - June 2015)

'Specific gravity', an old scientific term, is a way of measuring the density of one substance in relation to another. In this exhibition artists explore the complex interdependencies of substance in natural phenomena and history. They consider the relationship between the micro and macro, the graspable and the nebulous, the mundane earthbound and the cosmological universal.
