The exhibition takes place in a long room defined on one side by a series of eleven closely spaced electrical outlets. Taking advantage of this functional architecture, Conlon crafted eleven mechanical sculptures, each of which illustrates one of the eleven dimensions described by M-theory, a branch of string theory. Moving from object to object, one can see the ways that dimensional transitions flow from one to the next or leap disjunctively.
