Matter, Energy, Human
Matter, Energy, Human delves into the intersections between quantum physics, metaphysical theory, and the human experience. Each section uncovers the visual beauty of unfolding physical phenomena while illuminating the complex, yet delicate, human condition – physically, emotionally, spiritually, and as a universal whole. Deepak Chopra’s writings in Everyday Immortality: A Concise Course in Spiritual Transformation impact the connective fabric of the work. Audiences witness two storylines – (1) energy and matter and (2) the seemingly concrete human experience – that parallel, impact, weave, crescendo, and converge. Collaborator Timothy Nohe composes the evolving, oscillating sound score.
