I don’t know if anyone else has seen the YouTube animation that explains the ten dimensions of the physical world, as predicted by the theoretical framework of M- or String theory.

It's not an inappropriate comparison. After all, Chamberlain is known for using old automobiles and their dismembered parts to create sculptures with painterly surfaces. Some parts are marbleized and maintain a dripping, liquid texture. These are attached... [more]
