"One thing I have learned in a long life: that all our science, measured against reality, is primitive and childlike—and yet it is the most precious thing we have."


Albert Einstein, letter to Hans Muehsam, 9 July 1951

“…the entire universe lies inside one of the stone pillars that ring its central court… No one, of course, can actually see it, but those who lay an ear against the surface tell that after some short while they perceive its busy hum…” – Jorge Luis Borges, The Aleph.Only Everything Lasts Forever is an audio composition featuring every human audible sound that the MP3 audio format is capable of generating at the standard mono sampling rate of 64kbps. Fed by a random number generator, the code that constructs this maximalist composition is 28 kilobytes, or about half the size of the average email, while its total duration is approximately 10^450  years. For comparison, the current age of the universe is estimated to be 1.31x109  years old, and its lifespan is thought to be in the range of 3x109,  both miniscule fractions of the duration of Only Everything Lasts Forever; the number a “googol”, which was chosen by the eponymous search engine [sic] to signify the informational vastness of the Internet, is only 10^100.
For this installation audio projects out of the wall. You put your ear onto the wall in the center of the square to hear the work.

"Consider that you can see less than 1% of the electromagnetic spectrum and hear less than 1% of the acoustic spectrum. As you read this, you are traveling at 220 km/sec across the galaxy. 90% of the cells in your body carry their own microbial DNA and are not ‘you’. The atoms in your body are 99.9999999999999999% empty space and none of them are the ones you were born with, but they all originated in the belly of a star. Human beings have 46 chromosomes, 2 less than the common potato. The existence of the rainbow depends on the conical photoreceptors in your eyes; to animals without cones, the rainbow does not exist. So you don’t just look at a rainbow, you create it. This is pretty amazing, especially considering that all the beautiful colors you see represent less than 1% of the electromagnetic spectrum."
