For 11 years, the Photon Articulator languished in obscurity, and Caroline Byrne was forced to turn her attention to other work she was less qualified for. 


Then, on April 17th, 2022, at 3:35pm Central European Time, strangely heavy particles were detected at the Large Hadron Collider outside Geneva, Switzerland. Shortly thereafter, the as yet unheard of Photon Articulator experienced a burst of popularity, as its super-symmetric form accurately illustrated both time and space.

Caroline Byrne's Patent Application was finally accepted on January 6th, 2023. You can find an exact replica at our Museum. 



Within a few short months, Byrne's illustrations, plans, and private journals were published, garnering critical and popular support. In the Spring of 2024, she received an honorary Doctorate degree from the California Institute of Technology.

The awe inspiring Giant Articulator was made by volunteer knitters for the 25th Anniversary Celebration. Closing day festivities were marred when a particularly bold guest attempted to crawl into the elusive central vortex, seriously injuring himself and the two others who attempted rescuing him. 



On May 17th, 2045, the "Camp of the Crystal Strings" commits a mass suicide, leaving 17 people dead. Although the Camp was a lone extremist faction whose radical visions actually contradicted Caroline Byrne's own detached though amicable skepticism, the Tragedy brought unwanted media attention to the Photon Articulator Society. 

Fortunately, the chaotic aftermath had a silver lining... And in November of that terrible year, a sympathetic and anonymous donor secured funds for the start up of our museum...

This vintage viewing devices station was one of our first attractions; it is currently on display at our museum. 




Our first gift shop, times have changed! but we try to keep the original spirit of the place.

Caroline Byrne, Hello! I hope (for your sake) this is some kind of joke. I looked in the Art Database, the Science Database, and even the Literature Database and I couldn't find your name anywhere. In the Culture Misc. Database I did find a Caroline Byrne who was an Australian model who was tragically murdered by her boyfriend in 1995. I also found Nancy Dwyer, the woman you made our chairs with. Anyway, I thought I should be the one to tell you, because everyone you know is also living in the past. Well, have a nice week! - Anla
