Schrödinger’s Cats @ the Popular Workshop
New works by Andrew Chapman, Aaron Finnis, Dana Hemenway, Christopher Füllemann, and Ginger Wolfe-Suarez & Primitivo Suarez-Wolfe.
Schrödinger’s Cats is a multi-part exhibition curated by Aaron Harbour and Jackie Im. Artists have been invited to contribute a work not entirely present in a definitive, final, physical manifestation; instead, something hovering in an intermediary state waiting to be substantiated. The works will come into existence in multiple times/places; its second iteration will occur at The Popular Workshop from July 19th through August 23rd
Erwin Schrödinger described how one could, in principle, transpose quantum indeterminacy and superposition into large-scale systems. He proposed a scenario with a cat in a sealed box, wherein the cat’s life or death becomes dependent on the state of an unobserved subatomic particle. According to Schrödinger’s thought experiment, the cat remains both alive and dead (to the universe outside the box) until the box is opened and an observation is made.
