New York-based artist duo Mark Barrow and Sarah Parke have their latest works on display at Independent Régence in Brussels. Matter of Time, one of the works in the exhibition, features images taken by the Hubble telescope from 2002-2006 of an exploding star that came apart furiously over 20,000 years ago. For V838 Mon, the artists have been manipulated colorful pixels to create a 12-second video animation that plays on a continuous loop. An underlying pattern is revealed as the star explodes, which has been used in some of the paintings in the exhibition.
