Book Description: Afterglow explores the ever expanding edges of our universe. Many of the phenomena integral to our model of the universe, such as black holes, gamma ray bursts, dark matter and dark energy, have not been seen – either because they are not visible at optical wavelengths or simply because the universe is too vast for us to happen to be looking at the right place at the right time. These phenomena must therefore be represented by symbolic systems such as mathematics, language and art. The images contained within AFTERGLOW offer not only a symbolic representation of these phenomena but have been organized by processes similar to those responsible for generating such phenomena in the first place – heat, density, mass, time. Afterglow is compact, orientable, spacelike.
