MUCILAGINOUS OMNIVERSE | 2009 | performance

Above the surface of upwardly sonicated silicone oil, falling droplets of the same liquid are suspended by a thin membrane of air, acoustically regenerated underneath each droplet. Without coalescing for extended periods, these palpitating spheroids bounce on the air-oil interface and merge into self-assembling lattices. Ten million times larger than an atom, a non-coalescing oil droplet is the largest object to manifest the self-interferential signature of wave-particle duality. The slippery frontier between macroscopic and quantum phenomena can now be pierced by the senses.
