For me, science and magic have always been intrinsically linked. As a born and raised witch, I have always known that nature is bigger than we know. Vaster, wiser, and cleverer than we believe. When I stumbled on a physics book and began reading, I became mesmerized. The things I was reading sounded like magic, not science. Teleportation across space and time, particles and waves swirling together to form the world we see around us, simultaneous realities?! Insane!! It reminded me how to view the world how I used to- when everything I saw was new and constantly mind-blowing.
This year has shown me that the world isn’t what I thought- that the ground is a lot shakier than it seems. Reading about physics brought me a great deal of calm, mostly because irrationality is baked right in. Reading about quantum physics, and the unseen laws that govern our existence, became a powerful metaphor for me. That metaphor became this collection. The curves of space and time, history as we view it- as we experience it- is it as it is? We may have lived this life before- and physics says so. Though the pieces I put forth are far from microscopic, they represent the beauty of chaos, and the calm that can be found within it. The waves that symbolize the ebb and flow of time, and space, and matter.
