Incidents of Travel in the Multiverse focuses on three films directed by the acclaimed British artists and filmmakers AL and AL. The first story travels to the edge of a black hole, as superstring physicist Brian Greene and composer Philip Glass bring Einsteinís general theory of relativity to life. The second story sees thinking machines from the future travel back in time in search of their creator, Alan Turing, while the final story, made with nanobiophysicist Bart Hoogenboom, travels across the universe on a mission to find the origins of life and a cure for death. This book brings the creative process of AL and ALís filmmaking to life through previously unseen material from their archives, including photographs, drawings, correspondence, screenplays and notes. Texts by Marina Warner, celebrated science writer Brian Greene and best selling graphic novelist Grant Morrison examine the theory of the multiverse.
