ABOUT THE PRODUCT

CARBON FIBER "Dark Matter Copper"

It might just be the case that “Dark Matter Copper” is quite literally made from the stuff of stars. You see, copper, along with other heavy elements, is produced in the furnaces at the cores of stars. And as they die – a massive explosion scatters these elements far into space. Some scientists believe that four and a half billion years ago, our infant Earth inherited its copper reserves in exactly such a way – from the explosion of giant stars, such as Rigel and Betelgeuse.

We have now repurposed some of that copper into a form reminiscent of the landscape it once called home. Surrounded by the dark matter that fills the vast reaches of the cosmos it was. And surrounded by dark matter it is now.
