Art Description

Printmaking: Screenprinting on Paper.

Print with two states: in normal daylight 3 lines are visible; In the dark or with UV light: 3D volumes, surfaces are revealed. Note: print is sold with a small UV lamp.

In quantum physics, decoherence refers to a process by which two components of a complex entity come to evolve independently from one another. This is one of the underlying theme explored with this series. Each print holds two states that cannot be seen at the same time but yet exist concurrently. They play with the limitations of visual perception and force the viewer to questions assumptions on reality.

In daylight, each print displays a composition of fine black lines. When exposed to UV light or in the dark, a second state appears revealing surfaces or volumes of light. Once both of those states have been witnessed, separately, the very first impression of the print cannot be reproduced as the sight of the second state affects the viewer irreversibly. The series therefore also reflects on the concept of entanglement, as one cannot see the print in a state without thinking of the other. The entanglement of the two states exists permanently in the viewer's mind.
