Being an astrophysicist, calculating the mass of stars, orbits, gravity, velocity, etc., was a third career choice I had in mind when I was in school. As you can see, it didn’t quite work for me. Nevertheless, I am still interested. That’s how I got the idea for this project. In physics there is a theory called the chaos theory and that’s what I tried to visualize. Chaos and order to be precise. The way I wanted to visualize these abstract terms were through long exposures. Light painting.

There is no „real Chaos“. Even chaos has a pattern and is therefore calculable. What makes a pattern chaotic is its seemingly aimless motion. Order on the other hand is easily calculable and has a clear pattern; a clear rhythm.
