Quantum Art and Uncertainty

Paul Thomas

Intellect Press

 

Art and science.

A quest for answers.

Creativity.

There are a range of similar approaches and synergies that apply to all of the aforementioned.

Quantum Art and Uncertainty explores what could be described as inbetween-ness and hard to define middle ground meandering between hammering on the gates of nothingness and the often soulless forward motion that propels our fast-paced life and has accelerated to a devil’s pace over recent years, i.e. it challenges binary thinking and advocates to rethink the way what we perceive to be our natural positioning.

Life is seen as nothing but a flickering light with art being the suspension mechanism and a tool to assess what we are and serve as an anchor.

Each chapter of Quantum Art and Uncertainty deals with one "property, dimension or aspect of quantum phenomena" and the impact of inconstancy, illustrating it using both physics and art and exemplifying the oeuvre or artists or genres like e.g. surrealism with scientific principles and the parallels that are drawn are fascinating if often unintended.

The book points to directions in which a rather new art stream that has evolved over time might weave its uncertain way and examines the performative aspect between the act and the emissions that come with it.

In essence, it elaborates what Brian Green must have had in mind when he stated that exploring the unknown requires tolerating uncertainty, the very condition to impel man to unfold his powers, with art being the lantern in the dark.

Sounds all too heady?

It is but on the same token it is never not relevant to your day-to-day operations as at the end of the day life is nothing but particles and an enormous wave coexisting at all times that comprises the oneness of the universe.
