Irene Clark exhibits Quantum Entanglements (Morphic Resonance) in the Narthex Gallery at Saint Peter's Church May 19 through July 9, 2016. Free and open to the public daily.
This installation is presented by Midtown Arts Common in cooperation with Saint Peter's Church.
About the work These unusual large drawings, in red ochre chalks on black paper, and oil paintings on indigo and black backgrounds explore the endless variety and opportunities of surprising connectedness in the quantum world across the universe and through collective memories inherited from past species.
Quantum theory holds that “the quantum connection between two particles can persist even if they are on opposite sides of the universe. From the standpoint of their entanglement, notwithstanding the many trillions of miles of space between them, it’s as if they are right on top of each other… our universe is not local,” according to Dr. Brian Greene, Columbia professor of theoretical physics, lecturer, and author.
Morphic resonance is a process whereby self-organizing systems inherit a memory from previous similar systems. Thus each individual inherits a collective memory from past members of the species and also contributes to the collective memory, affecting other members of the species in the future.
“This theory also extends to electromagnetic waves, influencing extra dimensions and affecting our sun, galaxies and elsewhere in the Universe,” writes well-known English biologist, author, and lecturer Dr. Rupert Sheldrake.
“We are the tiniest of specks in this stellar universe, which itself is only one in the multiverses that create the fabric of space/time,” said Ms Clark. “One cosmic mystery is expressed by Quantum Entanglement: the possibility that something may be in two places at the same time, or on top of each other! It is the complexity and beauty of these events that drive my excitement to create this series.”
