Lost In Place
Painting - Mixed
Notice there is no clock. This is the initial piece for a series. The series emphasizes stretching the perception out of our own space and time.
In this specific one, Mookwalking - Crunch Time, II also emphasize the individual and the idea that now is the space age (as opposed to soon), and through my use of reflection to the viewer--II attempt to empower the individual, think beyond.
Mymy inspiration came in listening to a lecture by physicist Leonard Susskind, who got Stephen Hawking to concede to his own idea of what happens in a black hole. As you may know, black holes are mysterious because they disprove our mathematics. The center of a black hole has infinite gravity, and infinite mass--as if it's a whole other universe inside. It's not possible, right? Hawking thought that everything that gets sucked in gets crushed beyond imagination and is transformed into radiation, the only thing that escapes a black hole. Since we don't see enough radiation to account for things that disappear into them, Susskind thinks that the inside can be described as a hologram. Even the mathematics work out that way, and it made sense to the most brilliant known mind.
So what does this say about our world? Our universe? Our thoughts?
It's crazy mathematic and imaginative--and that's what draws me to it. Because I think of arts as visual languages I think that there is a visual representation of anything you can think of, for real.
Apparently, what we can assume is that each and every single particle has a radiating projection of itself shooting out in all directions--that goes for every electric pulse jumping from neuron to neuron in your brain as well. We will never be able to perceive this, but we can understand that it is our reality. YOU are being projected in all directions, on the wall, on the tv, your fish tank, your shower curtains, etc. Everything. RADIATION is what it is, though, being projected. But since atoms themselves are a form of radiation, we are everything. Once again we come to the conclusion that we are the center of the universe. Could we come to this conclusion without going to space? And is it just a matter of time before break this theory and realize once again that we're not at the center of the universe, philosophically?
