Matter and Infinity is a solo show by Dani Gill, exploring memory, water, lineage, the real and the ephemeral. 
Working with water, text, and sculpture, the work explores what it means to exist in, and between universal planes, 
the fractured nature of memory, and how we understand our physical state.

Matter: timber, wood for building, the woody part of a tree 
Materia, derivative of mater “mother, source, origin of (material and abstract) things.”
Three states of matter: solid; liquid and gas.
4th kind of matter-Plasma, the most abundant form of ordinary matter in the universe, mostly in stars (including the Sun), 
but also dominating the rarefied intracluster medium and intergalactic medium.

Infinity: from early French infinité, derived from Latin infinitus "having no limit," from in- "not" and finitus, past participle of finire 
"to limit, bring to an end," from finis "end, limit"
Anaximander, pre-Socratic Greek philosopher, ‘apeiron’, which means "unbounded", "indefinite"
Mathematician John Wallis, 1655: three main types of infinity may be distinguished: the mathematical, the physical, and the metaphysical.
