Museum of Science and Industry, Manchester

 

Created following RANDOM INTERNATIONAL’s residency at the National Graphene Institute in Manchester, Everything and Nothing is the studio’s first purely video-based work and was commissioned especially for the Wonder Materials exhibition at the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry.

Throughout the residency, the studio was intrigued by the nature of graphene; a material full of imagined potential yet difficult to see, touch or fabricate on a large scale. That something so mysterious could come from such familiar and earthly a substance as graphite gave Random International the desire to wrestle the idea of this new material back from the abstract into the physical world. Everything and Nothingcontinues the artists’ exploration of the relationship between human beings and technological development. The piece represents an unstoppable force that can both compact and fragment, destroy and enable renewal.
