Einstein’s Magic Glasses

Copyright Douglas Stockdale

Another series I am planning to continue working on in 2023 is a derivative of my Quantum Elements body of work that I started due to the isolation issues of the COVID-19 when I was in self-quarantine in 2020. As a result of a happy accident, I became intrigued to start my attempts to visualize the Time-Space world of Quantum Mechanics.

The working title for this body of work is Einstein’s Magic Glasses.

This project is investigating the hidden (imaginary) sub-atomic landscape that surrounds us. If Albert Einstein’s theories related to Quantum Mechanics is correct, then there is a good chance that the sub-atomic space (and landscape) will look very similar to outer-space of our galaxy and the universe beyond. If Einstein did have some magic glasses to aid him in his research, then maybe this is what he saw.

I think creating cyanotypes could be a very fitting medium to visually investigate a sub-atomic landscape, as we associate blue with the night sky and deep water. I just need to consider whether I want to emulate NASA and colorize some of my sub-atomic landscape cyanotypes. Btw, I have no idea whatsoever of where this project may go; I really can’t immediately think of many galleries who could be interested in this body of work, although it has a lot of the visual attributes of abstract art. So to start, I will keep this artwork small; 8 x 10″ images cyanotype printed on a 11 x 14″ sheet of watercolor medium, probably in an edition of five. (above image is digital faux cyanotype, in line with yesterday’s what-if article)

Cheers & make every day an Earth Day
