Artist Note: Albert Einstein’s (1879-1955) theories of relativity provide a more classical and absolute meaning of our three physical dimensions. In contrast the theories of quantum mechanics developed by Max Planck (1858-1947) are more concerned with the behavior of quanta matter and energy in the universe on a subatomic level that is less absolute and quantifiable. Among Einstein’s quantum contributions was a study about light quanta.
However, his attempts at trying to unify his theories with quantum theory proved frustrating and in time he commented: “the more success the quantum theory has, the sillier it looks.” 1.
Artwork: The artwork is about Einstein determining that gravity provides a fourth dimension that warps space-time.
