The Uncertainty Principle: Light/Self

Description

This sculpture is an exploration of the notions of quantum mechanics, specifically the Uncertainty Principle – which states that it is impossible to measure the exact position and momentum of subatomic particles – and what that means for our awareness and existence. As one interacts with the sculpture one sees different parts of the room and themselves as they move about the space. The experience brings new insight of this conception and engages new questions and ideas of how this may affect our psyche as humans.
