Zeitgeist Gallery presented HARMONY OF THE SPHERES, a multidisciplinary project by Kevin Cooley and Phillip Andrew Lewis which uses the process of creating and subsequently destroying vinyl records as metaphor for the creation and destruction of the cosmos. The title of the exhibition refers to an ancient Greek belief in a connection between the movements of celestial bodies, namely the sun, moon, and planets which creates a form of music, manifesting in numbers, visual angles, shapes and sounds. Vinyl was chosen by the artists as an ideal material to work with for it’s physical characteristics and conceptual significance. Vinyl is essentially a form of compressed carbon – the building block of the universe itself.
