This piece represents a fusion of the quantum world with the universe. Imagery and the symbolism behind equations come together to form the art. Depending on the viewer, layers of meaning may form a hidden current or surface up in the depictions of concepts, such as superposition of quantum states, the famous Schrodinger equation, commutators of quantum mechanical operators, and an animal representation of the double slit experiment. The title references the many questions posed by quantum mechanics and studies of the universe, some of which have led to essential insights about the world around us.
