Marzipan Physics is both a fictional extraterrestrial physicist & an NYC-based street artist. Using intergalactic & sub-atomic motifs, Marzipan evokes the psychedelic past and the retro-future, while imagining an alternate realm in which everything fantastical and bad-ass can be celebrated; a place where reading theoretical physics tomes while floating on nebulae is this fashion-forward alien’s version of Netflix & chill. Disquieting signs of a digital dystopia and/or multilateral apocalypse hover in the middle-ground, suggesting that our nightmarish present will persistently penetrate any attempts at escapism. In a macro sense, the work can be experienced as a meditation on the relative insignificance of humanity in an infinite, unfathomable universe.
