About the Exhibition

"The simple truth known to the brokenhearted, the mystic, and the physicist: what we think solid is not. What most of us believe constitutes the "real" material world - the stuff we can reach out, touch, hold, buy, and see - physicists all agree is actually not solid at all. In fact, what appears "solid" or material in our world is really 99.999999999999 percent empty space made "solid" by a miniscule fraction of matter that may not even be matter but wavelets of energy. Light is a particle that, when we try and measure it by passing it through a narrow opening, behaves just like an ocean wave passing through a narrow harbor. Once through the slender opening, light wave and water wave fan out, each forming a crescent pattern. A far more accurate characterization of our universe would be ‘fluid’….” - These words, written by Rebecca Hoffberger, inspired Maya Angelou to call to say how personally meaningful they were to her. From fantastical mermaids to environmental concerns, all things water were artfully explored in a year that began with the Indonesian Tsunami and ended with Katrina, the storm that inundated New Orleans.
