Is physical reality becoming redundant? Both contemporary art and science are challenging the concept of reality and opening up areas of investigation from micro to macrocosm. From the imaginary reality of Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster to the scientific experiments in Geneva of the Large Hadron Collider, Einstein’s notion of the distinction between past and present and future being merely a persistent illusion seems increasingly pertinent. Throughout history humans have always held beliefs in mystical worlds, alternative zones and eternal lands where an alternative reality co-exists with our own. Whether through religious beliefs, myths, legends or fairy tales, projection and idealisation offer an escape from mundane or harsh reality, as well as hope for a preferable future. www.n-everland.co.uk
