Origins of the Universe references both Gustave Courbet's L'Origine du monde (1819) and the contemporary fad of 3D printing holders for smartphones. Here a nude woman lies on a bed with wrinkled sheets covering her face. An iPhone positioned between her thighs. For the iPhone content, Eric Rieper and John Soat of Point in Passing produced a custom version of wwwwwwwwwwwww.xyz, a web app which pulls from the passive content of YouTube to create a real-time stream of uploaded videos. A number of keywords related to "origins of the universe" have been programmed into the app, continually cycling content onto the screen of the iPhone.
