String theory merges two theories of modern physics -
quantum mechanics and general relativity, which are mathematically incompatible
- into a common framework. A fundamental premise of string theory is
that the basic objects in nature are not point-like, but string-like.
It suggests that there are as many as ten, plus time, for a total of
11 spacetime dimensions.
Visualizing extra dimensions is quite a challenge and
one that I am beginning to unravel in my art. My SUPERSTRINGS work explores
how these objects may appear in space.
