CREATIVE

         PROBABILITIES                        

The question is, can we become part of light? How do we transmit and receive COSMIC waves and rays? What are the key codes? Can human consciousness expand  into vaster flexibility, or are we dealing with forces beyond logical concepts? Why do animals have sensors that can detect earth movements and fated events?  A German Shepherd lost a thousand miles away is able to find its way back. Wolves wandering over high mountain tops can look over vistas and sense danger far away. They wander on the earth like deeply connected to the earth's inner electromagnetic forces as well as tuned to planetary cosmic forces. Especially wild animals, like wolves,  can see, hear and smell far beyond humans. They seem to move by a radar sense, a sort of built in receiver. If we could combine this kind of a receiver with human analytical , logical and creative abilities, we might be able to comprehend and share these cosmic forces penetrating and directing our lives. We know they exist, but we are searching for connections and answers.
As artists we try to assimilate these forces and give expressions to miraculous possibilities by working together with scientists, philosophers and technologists.. I have tried to put together a sampling of magnificent human endeavors within these lines of research to help find creative possibilities within the realm of probabilities.
Albert Einstein is the closest example, I can think of, who combined universal forces within a human mind and body. He found that total inner concentration of energy was best achieved when in touch with all universal forces simultaneously while playing with pebbles at the seashore. Water, wind, earth, solar fire and the energy from the inner core of our planet together with cosmic energy pointed to his vision of the relativity of space-time curvature..

The Ultimate Test



In 1916 Einstein expanded his Special Theory to include the effect of gravitation on the shape of space

and the flow of time.

Although he is regarded as one of the most brilliant mathematical physicists of the century, Einstein thought of himself as much as a philosopher as a scientist. Certainly his theories relating matter, energy, space, time and gravity have guided much of the work in theoretical physics since 1905. His famous "thought experiments," based on intuition and imagination rather than laboratory work, propelled us beyond the mechanistic, unchanging "clockwork universe" of Newton and the other classical physicists into a relativistic universe. Here clocks run slower or faster depending on the speed of travel or location in the universe, and "true" distances are stretched or shrunk by gravity.

Einstein's legacy is a universe in which space and time are woven into a single fabric -- spacetime. It is matter that causes spacetime to curve and whose motion and properties are, in turn, altered by that curvature. A short video on Einstein's ideas.

"THE FUTURE OF ART IS LIGHT"

This visionary statement by Henri Matisse is being realized by contemporary artists inspired by recent scientific research.into matter, space-time and multimedia.
Can humans receive ultra wave rays transmission and comunicate in parts of the electro-magnetic spectrum? Can the inner electro-magnetic energy created within a human in great concentration interact with lightrays from galactic inner space?
Artisis have been using ultrasonic soundbeams which detect the positions and movements of  human bodies. Paul Friedlander has erected monumental light sculptures interacting with humans. He is trying to capture light sources from unknown galactic space. He states that we might "imagine a searchlight, not a million or a billion times brighter than anything that  now exists, but harnessing the power of a super nova. If we could shine this light across intergalactic space upon the vasr mass of dark matter surrounding our galaxy, what would be revealed?"
Friedlander continues to say that this remains the greatest mystery in science. Scientists acknowlede that we know it is there, but more than 90% of the mass of the universe is of a totally unknown form. Friedlander's grandiose attempt at creating an interactive rendition of this experience comes to life in his installation Dark Matter which brings together the visible and invisible. The human intercations with the beams of light trigger different responses to different waves of energy. Groups of light waves circle within other superwaves forming a rhythm and dance that perhaps correspond to cosmic rhythms and waves. Paul Friedlander's Light Sculptures let human vibrations interact with cosmic vibrations through energy waves. The picture below shows a detail of one of his light sculptures. More can be found from his website listed below.

Mandala

Interaction with light waves and inner galactic space leads into bigger and deeper cosmic questions. Dr. Cornell has researched this inner reality. She refers to some specific fields of research in her book on Mandalas and geometric art and science. Dr. Judith Cornell describes the art of mandalas and the luminous symbols for healing..

Light Flurries

 

"Light Flurries" 1992
is a reflection hologram made in three exposures, using red laser light. During each exposure the emulsion is immersed in a different mixture of water and alcohol, which swells the emulsion to varying degrees, resulting in a multicolored final image. This is an economical way to make different colors visible in reflection holograms with only a red laser to record the hologram.

Quantum Mind I

Quantum mechanics is a theory of modern physics that since about 1926 has dominated the analysis of matter, motion, and radiation. Physics from before that time, now referred to as "classical" physics, survives as only an approximate description of how nature works. We need quantum mechanics to understand precisely how the universe works, especially on the microscopic scale. Some scientists are looking at the application of quantum mechanics to consciousness as a way to explain paranormal phenomena. The first step is to explain the human mind itself, which is not easy.

If quantum mechanical processes are at work in "ordinary" consciousness, this opens up vast possibilities for exploring higher consciousness. What is happening to an electron while it is in the superposition state? Where is it? Physics can't really answer this question now, but one hypothesis is that these particles are moving into other dimensions.

Dimensions are just directions in space, each direction at a right angle to the others. Our physical, classical nervous system is only capable of perceiving three dimensions. How many dimensions, ultimately, could there be? Evidence from quantum mechanics suggests that there could well be an infinite number of dimensions.

Telepathy and clairvoyance may perhaps be a manifestation, in our classical world, of non-locality. The brain is able to access this information because part of it is behaving quantum mechanically. Consciousness may not be limited to the physical body, but may also reside in higher dimensions. This is a kind of scientific Neoplatonism.

Could quantum information be the key to understanding consciousness? Could consciousness enable future quantum information technology?


Sun Drawings
A changing image of light
http://www.janetsaadcook.com

 

To create a Sun Drawing, artist Saad-Cook shapes and assembles reflective materials (mirrored metals and optically coated glass) and positions the reflective instrument in a pre-selected path of direct sunlight.
The optical coatings on the glass are multi-layered interference coatings that break light into its pure colors. No pigments are used. The colors in a Sun Drawing are pure colors of sunlight.

As the sun moves across the reflective elements, Ortus undergoes remarkable changes.

ELLIPTICAL GALAXIES
(Information also accessible as text list and a complete searchable file)


Artist have been inspired by astronomical photography capturing rich textures of blended colors, fine compositions of dots, lines, and movement. But what the finf the most intriguing is the display of light of various intensities and frequencies. Friedlander was fascinated by the intense light of nebulae. Joy Wulke speaks of the importance of light in one of his projects shown below.

"Light is said to be our first experience with the world and our last. It is both ephemeral and constant. Alll world cultures count on daily and seasonal changing light to define the rhythm of life; waking/sleeping, working/play. Light has come to define time, not only the diurnal light of the day but also the light year (a unit of astrological distance), expanding our concept of what time m
eans." Joy Wulke


An Illustrated history of the enquiry into light as presented in the Stony Creek Quarry. Performers included rock climbers in illuminated costumes, dancers, laser and theatrical light performers with water, fire, and mist. An origional sound score accompanied by ambient frogs complimented the visual effects.


"Perhaps truth about light and our fictions simultaneously invent each other. It is why we need the sun and why we must make our own light when the sun is gone." Sydney Perkowitz, Empire of Light

   A major light, sound and theater project performed in the Stony Creek, CT quarry telling the story of human inquiry from the Big Bang to String Theory

What if Einstein and Curie, Leonardo and the Arab creators of the Astrolabe collaborated with the men and women Shamans of Australia, Africa, the Americas and other world cultures to create an event that asked questions about the meaning of time, important events of the last Millennium and the meaning of earth and sky to our world view? Perhaps they would be asking the same questions of each other we explored in Terra Continuum, an epic event fully staged in the Stony Creek Granite Quarry. The story was illustrated through light projections, laser, falling and shooting water, fire, original music, sculpture, performance, dance, and audience participation.

Terra Continuum was an eight night outdoor performance in the Stony Creek Quarry that transcended conventional art and science to challenge audiences as never before. The journey began when audiences stepped onto shuttle busses departing from three locations. Audiences were guided by Bus Shamans who led them to their places in the quarry.

Some comments about Terra Continuum:
"Terra Continuum is ancient, modern and wildly creative. It will be one of the most interesting environmental installations you'll ever see."
Faith Middleton - Connecticut Public Radio



   


"From the petroglyphs to equations. From stone walls to chalkboards. Human kind's scrim bbled attempts to make order of the universe. Messages into the future that are symbols of the quest/questions of the day…Einstein's questions and mathematically quantifiable answers blew the roof off common sense observations and his theories of relativity introduced the concept of space/time continuum into our vocabulary. Then quantum mechanics cam in that said that we alter any experiment we engage in, that the act of observing alters that which is observed. Finally, we are at the threshold of String Theory, the theory which so excites and delights physicists. It could be the Big T.O.E. - Theory of Everything."
Susan Mendelshon June, 1999
