Complementarity (2019)


«For everything that is shown something is hidden.» - James Bridle

The principle of complementarity comes from quantum mechanics and describes the inability of certain pairs of objects’ properties to be seen simultaneously. This idea shows how physical reality is built of partly unpredictable elements, which cannot be known in their entirety. Complementarity embraces this uncertainty and celebrates the intrinsic duality of the world. In this abstract visualisation the sky could be the ground and air is perhaps water.
