Disorders Of Magnitude

2009         9' high 5' wide 16' deep

material: found objects used in measuring time and space,
stainless steel cable, steel, wood
site: McColl Center for Art + Innovation, Charlotte, NC
photographs by Ben Premeaux
temporary installation

Over the course of a three-month residency at the McColl Center for Visual Art the artist created an unconventional portrait of Werner Heisenberg (1901-1976), the physicist best known for his Uncertainty Principle.

The sculpture's components are instruments used in the measurement of time and space, albeit on levels wholly inadequate to Heisenberg's field of quantum mechanics.

While the composition appears to be random, the suspended elements coalesce into a likeness of the scientist when viewed from a single, unique perspective (the anamorphic phenomenon).

Biographical subtext aside, Disorders of Magnitude is a metaphor for the elusiveness of knowing oneself or others.
