an object inspired by our continuous fight against entropy and
impermanence. Drawing on the theme of decay and regeneration, the
object reacts to human presence by decomposing itself in an entropic
motion when no one is around, and dimming its lights; whilst the reverse happens when the object is approached.
this project the source of inspiration was
the double-slit experiment
and trauma, which offers insight into the differences and
the way humans and their environment react to entropy.
in the material world will always follow an entropic pattern,
decomposing, going from order to disorder.
However, in the mind, a
process of reversed entropy seems to happen, in time our traumas heal
and events that happened seem to make sense in perspective, as they
say, time smoothens things out.
double-slit experiment is a demonstration that small particles of
light and matter can behave both as particles and waves and suggests
that the very act of observing a particle has a dramatic effect on
rose the question: Do
things have a life of their own when no one is there to observe them?
experiment led me to investigate and rethink the enigmatic
objects and people. The designed object would thus change its
behavior according to human presence. Having already developed the
theory of emotional reversed entropy, it was clear from here that the
viewer would trigger a reversed entropy behavior in the object.
cracks are a mark of the process of a cyclical pattern of growth and
decay , characteristic to life.
