TBT to secondary school when my trulove was QUANTUM MECHANICS –
so things about double-slit experiment, superposition, electron movements, electromagnetism, particle-wave theory I learnt it, my love for the topic died, I thought I would never touch on it again but here I am <3
Something about the Vastness and the mystery of the QT enshrouds me like a fairytale, almost. So this time I would really want to delve in and help people see what I have been seeing about QT all this while. To me: QT is
– a mess
– a warped dimension
– a mass of too many things at once
However, after going back and forth in the research of QT, I found out more about the different theories that I could make all of THAT^ make sense. And the following video is the main videos that helped me understand them more visually –
Quantum Fields: The Real Building Blocks of the Universe – with David Tong
From these primary researches I have made these are some Keywords/key phrases that I would like to show in my work:
Entangled – Related, yet in a Limbo, ‘upside down’, suspended reality?
Ambiguous – Blurry, Floating almost in every corner,
Scale – Vast, Spacial, Time dilation, Dimension
‘In the name of Science‘: Event horizon, Tesseract, Electrons, Quarks, Relativity, Fields, Waves, Particle-wave theory.
So for the first week: these are my leading pictures that would help me guide my process in the following weeks!
I also watched a video on entanglement in a more tangible sense, Couple sleeping style. They say :
Couples who sleep like this work as a unit.
“It means your lives are intertwined, that you function as a pair. You probably finish each other’s sentences and take care of each other,” Wood said.
So i would really like to include this into my work.
For the following page: This is my rough guide of how i want my Objects to flow, I would want to create a space that almost seemingly different forces acting upon them in all directions. Since I would be encapsulating the feeling of waves and fields into my work, These art works that have a rather random flow of particles are applicable to my works.
For the following page, The leading image would be the biggest one on the left where there is a person floating inbetween the two ‘possibilities’.
After consulting with Ina, various key ideas came to mind –
Metaphor – suspended reality? getting to know whats in-between
Limbo – ambiguous state
Personified into objects (How would you communicate quantum to a kid)
Reference: clock into the black hole – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5tc2p7jdkc&t=21s
spaghetti-fied/ toothpaste state @ wormhole through blackhole
Delving into the first image, the person could be a personification of the grey area between the things that are ‘tangible’ for us. Why personification? In this way, we can visually represent the grey area which is currently very hard to explain as they are too small, too sparse for the layman to see.
Then I remembered in my past that I have watched a movie – literally called ‘upside down‘
