Through the eyes of Dante as he travels “El Paradiso”, this project offers a conceptual understanding of space, registered by visualizing Form as it transitions between dimensions and states of determinacy. In these visual projections, Form exists in an interplay of the “Ideal” and “Real”, (or in quantum terms: responding to the “particle” or the “wave”) to propose how these two conditions coexist or subjugate one another as we descend dimensions and different states irrupt onto one another.
