UNI-VERSE SCULPTURE ARTIST STATEMENT
Based on the String Theory, the UNI-VERSE Sculpture is a creation of light and color that grows visibly in response to music, sound from the environment, or the participation of the observer. The most inspirational part of the String Theory, the Theory of Everything, describes all fundamental forces and forms of matter in terms of music by identifying subatomic particles not as tiny little dots, but as loops of vibrating strings corresponding to musical notes. The fundamental basis of all particles, everything in the whole universe, is comprised of these vibrating strings. It is the most simple form of existence—pure energy. Physicist Michio Kaku states that physics is a harmony of these vibrating strings. Creation and the universe are a symphony of strings: a UNI-VERSE, One Song.
The UNI-VERSE Sculpture flourishes as it receives the vibrations of energy culminating in a unique universe in which the music of life is the creation. Whether from an audience who sings to it, a Phillip Glass symphony played by an orchestra, a drummer who beats a rhythm, the sound of waves crashing on the beach, or even the ambient sound of a New York subway station, participatory observation influences the illumination of the sculpture. With each musical note that it registers, the sculpture grows, lighting up progressively with a visual incarnation of the sounds. Whether curated or spontaneous, the possibilities for experiential expression have no limit: a time-bound frenzy of creation in a museum exhibit, a geographic competition simultaneously occurring in different cities, a backdrop to social media, a centerpiece featured at a music festival or art fair. In essence, like the String Theory, the UNI-VERSE Sculpture harmonizes the vibrations of energy from the universe, manifesting it into a sculpture of light and creation.
