Representation of Dark Matter: French Artist Illustrates Dark Matter

In collaboration with astrophysicist Maryam Modjaz, French artist Abdelkader Benchamma illustrates dark matter in the installation "Representation of Dark Matter".

"Dark matter" has been in the news again lately as scientists in Switzerland have begun mapping what they believe is its prevalence across the universe. But they're not the only ones focused on identifying and describing it. French artist Abdelkader Benchamma has been making intricate drawings of cosmic phenomena for a while now, and his obsession with dark matter reaches its zenith in an installation on view for the next 12 months at The Drawing Center in New York City.
