Considering David Bohm’s writing on the Implicate Order and the macro and micro perspectives of landscape, the exhibit Thinking Like the Universe is an investigation into psychedelic landscapes and geometric cosmic patterns.
The theory of the Implicate Order contains an ultraholistic cosmic view; it connects everything with everything else. In principle, any individual element could reveal “detailed information about every other element in the universe.” The central underlying theme of Bohm’s theory is based on the “unbroken wholeness of the totality of existence as an undivided flowing movement without borders.” It is this unbroken wholeness and the inter-relation of all things that is the impetus for this exhibit. Bohm demonstrates this inter-connectedness, explaining that even two subatomic particles that have once interacted can instantaneously respond to each other’s motions thousands of years later and light-years apart. With this exhibition we examine our desire to make order from, or understand the interconnectedness of the universe, from subatomic particles up through the species. Whether observing expressions of landscape– abstracted, bastardized or imbued with mysticism or zooming in to see the patterns that exist at the particle level, we intuit the moving force that connects.
