Crawick Multiverse

Crawick Multiverse

Crawick Multiverse is landscape artist Charles Jencks’ creation on the site of a former open cast coal mine in Upper Nithsdale.

The multiverse was created using material found at the site, including thousands of boulders half buried below the ground. The landscape represents various cosmic patterns and combines four opposite ecologies – grasslands, mountains, a water gorge and a desert. It takes you on a journey past the Milky Way to a supercluster of galaxies, and then to a multiverse. Well, that’s the story…..

It’s a place I would love to visit in the winter when there’s snow or frost on the ground.

  1. I recall having dinner with Charles Jencks here in Portland. He was in town for a book reading, and my wife was invited by the organizer to a small dinner gathering after, and I got to tag along! Oh, the people I can claim to have met 🙂
