Visual artist Kate Daudy and physicist Kostya Novoselov explore the many facets of chaos and the inevitability of order it inspires.
Wonderchaos is a collaboration between internationally acclaimed visual artist Kate Daudy and Nobel prize-winning physicist Kostya Novoselov. Visitors are invited to reflect upon individual experiences of chaos, as well as shared experiences. This continues Daudy and Novoselov’s ongoing common project entitled Everything is Connected.
Drawing on their individual specialisms, Daudy and Novoselov have developed a new body of work, made especially for this exhibition, that explores chaos from various perspectives, including nature, science, history, philosophy, literature, war and time.
Works will include an intervention using the sheep at YSP to illustrate random number theory, chaos and order; crochet hangings demonstrating two infinite irrational numbers and the harmony created when the numbers are combined to create a rational number; and Daudy’s first steel sculpture, which explores myths of chaos, creation and the origins of language.
