This illustration for SYREN’s next show in February just got published! The piece “Red and Blue, Bitter and Sweet” is inspired by the existential implications of some of the theories of quantum physics, including duality, relativity and entanglement.
The title was inspired by this quote by Erwin Schrodinger:
“The scientific picture gives us a lot of factual information, puts all of our experience in a magnificently consistent order, but it is ghastly silent about all that is really near to our heart that really matters to us. It cannot tell us a word about red and blue, bitter and sweet..”
I pulled in some of the equations that form the basis of quantum physics in my design as well as the lovely entangled choreography of Kate Mehan and dancers Darcie Perkins and Rivkins Christopher.
Come see the show! February 9, 10, 11 2017 at Gibney Dance in NYC.
Illustration in white chalk on black paper.
