There are fundamental properties, constructs, and forces existing on the sub-atomic scale that manifest themselves in the larger scale of human social interaction that often go unacknowledged. This artwork inspects a few of these qualities of our sub-atomic universe, including power and hierarchy, inclusion and exclusion, opposition and attraction, probability and chance, and entropy, and reflects on their translation into the macroscopic world. The ideas and concepts I am presenting are not new; I believe the originality of this work is in its combination and presentation of these ideas and concepts. Proposed in this way, I believe it is possible to gain a clearer understanding of our humanity.
