Thirty Five

Quarktet by Sara Cardona


The works in the Psy-Phi series are inspired by Edge of Chaos Theory. The theory posits that when systems run down and structures give way to entropic dissolution, a zone which allows for strong creative regeneration blossoms before total chaos. It is in this zone, on the edge of chaos, that inventiveness is at is apogee. These collages bring together images from man-made structures, organic and fluid forms, brutalist art and biological organisms to create science fiction like structures. Their titles make reference to an armature that weaves together psychic states, philosophy, science and mythology; all human attempts to navigate our connection to the cosmos.
