The title of the exhibition exhibition <wave function salon/> references the 19th century Feynman or double-slit experiment, the concept of which is also informed by neuroscience; the functionality of our sensory organs, specifically sight and our reliance on our eyes to gauge “what is,” as well as the programming our brain undergoes as we grow up. The experiment shows that light travelling through two slits can display diffraction patterns illustrating the wave-like behaviour of electrons, which collapse to form a single particle when an observer is in place. The exhibition explores the philosophical idea that we too collapse a wave function within our own minds, when we encounter a body in space, as well as when we face our bodies in the mirror.
