Navigating the Uncertainty Principle
The Nanaimo Art Gallery, campus location, 900 Fifth Street, presents Navigating the Uncertainty Principle by artist Ingrid Koenig from January 9 to February 14, 2009. Koenig's curious and fascinating works appear to be magnetized kitchenware. She is illustrating the appearance of the object and the invisible kinetic forces that bind the nature of the objects to their reality. Koenig explores the poetics of scientific theories. "The use of scientific diagrams in these works includes imagery of air currents, thermal movement, electromagnetism, black holes and chain reactions." She states, "My reinterpretation and remix of these concepts serve not only to illustrate but act as metaphor for conditions of contemporary life." She also speaks of being "driven to visualize the seemingly invisible phenomena of physics that we activate daily and which acts on us". The opening reception of Navigating the Uncertainty Principle is on Friday, January 9, 2009, from 7 to 9 pm. For more information call Chris Kuderle at 250-740-6350.
