While Thinking of Escaping
This hand-sewn natural silk scarf is an artist’s edition and has been designed from the homonymous work in the exhibition Time Bends as We Come Closer. Above it is the escape velocity formula and a graphic representation of this concept, based on an illustration by Isaac Newton presented in his Principia, of 1687. The formula allows calculating the velocity that a body must have to move away indefinitely from a more massive body to which it is bound by gravity.
