Emergence (1-9)

Time flows in one direction: forward. We cannot “unbreak” the teacup. We cannot “unspill” the milk. The universe moves inexorably towards a state of maximum entropy or disorder. Yet ordered patterns do exist.

This work explores the spontaneous emergence of pattern and order from a substrate of apparent randomness. The scale could be microscopic or continental. Patterns may indicate life, may reflect an underlying inorganic process, or it may be a projection of meaning from a subjective viewer.
