Singularity is an interactive art piece by artist Rebekah Waites that made it's debut at Burning Man last year. Multiple birdcages and houses pull spectators inside a shrinking world until they reach the point of singularity.

What inspired you to make this project?:
While working with my therapist a few years ago, I came to the realization that depression essentially creates a "black hole" in our mind. Repetitious compulsive thought patterns can feel like they go on for an infinity. After having the realization I was inspired to create Singularity as a way to physically illustrate how childhood trauma creates mental ripple effects. Singularity is unique in that it playfully uses physics to describe psychology. Or, maybe it uses psychology to describe physics. Depending on your story and how you feel compelled to interpret it, Singularity creates fun interactive environment that speaks to everyone.
