PAINTING THE INVISIBLE
After reading The Order of Time by theoretical physicist Carlo Rovelli, Christian was struck by the beauty and poetry of the science. When they met, artist and scientist discovered they shared the belief that science, poetry and philosophy are all valid ways in which to both look at reality, and to see beyond what is visible.
"ENTROPY IS A WAY OF TALKING ABOUT OUR LACK OF KNOWLEDGE: HOW MANY THINGS WE MISS WHEN WE SEE THE WORLD"
CARLO DESCRIBED HOW THE UNIVERSE IS MADE UP OF INTERACTIONS AND RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN ATOMS SO REALITY IS NOT MADE UP OF OBJECTS, BUT BY THE WAY OBJECTS INTERACT WITH ONE ANOTHER, AND THE BLURRING THAT OCCURS BETWEEN THE IMAGINARY CONSTRUCTS OF THE PAST AND FUTURE.

"What Christian is trying to do is the core of what art is. Capturing the complexity of what’s in front of us, which is much more than what a single camera can capture, the richness of reality - the many layers of reality."
