The theory of quantum mechanics suggests that all possible outcomes deriving from every circumstance, are carried out within their own distinct universes. Physicist Brian Greene describes these universes as “numerous ‘slabs’ floating in a higher-dimensional space, much like a slice of bread within a grander cosmic loaf”. This series is a visual exploration of collisions within the multiverse, where parallel lives are fleetingly merged into one. Memories, and formative experiences are slammed together in cyclical layers, revealing unseen and imagined narratives.
