Universal Raisin Cake Theory

Universal Raisin Cake Theory is a book in the form of a cake mix box inspired by a real way that astrophysicists have of describing the way in which the universe is expanding - as if it is a giant loaf of bread rising, with raisin-galaxies getting further apart (Alyce Santoro, FLIKR 2012).

This book object takes the form of an unfolded cake mix box. The box (or poster, if left flat) is inscribed with a metaphor commonly used by astrophysicists to describe the way the universe is expanding. It also includes a recipe and philosophical commentary (Women's Studio Workshop, 2007)
