THINKING LIKE THE UNIVERSE PROGRAMS

Considering David Bohm’s writing on the Implicate Order and the macro and micro perspectives of landscape, the exhibit Thinking Like the Universe and related programs are an investigation into psychedelic landscapes and geometric cosmic patterns. Thinking Like the Universe examines 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.

Hatch Gallery is located 492 23rd Street in Oakland.
