Entropy is known as “a thermodynamic quantity representing the unavailability of a system’s thermal energy for conversion into mechanical work, often interpreted as the degree of disorder or randomness in the system.” Dictionary.com,www.dictionary.com
Wow! That’s a pretty heavy definition. So what the above expression means is that everything in the universe and in our lives, evolves to a maximum level of equilibrium and eventually moves from order to disorder. So Entropy is the measurement of that change.
Everything that constitutes life… Life, Death, Processes could be measured in Entropy terms. There is a load of research I have done previously for this experience that you can read here ( https://road-to-resilience.blog/2019/04/19/entropy-order-and-disorder) but the best way I found to visually explain this process was boiling water!
I boiled some water to explain Entropy and burned my hands holding my Canon…Ouch!
Yep! That kinda hurt. Ouch! The best way of explaining Entropy is maybe using the example of boiling water or the “increase in entropy upon vaporisation of a liquid”. Wikipedia, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Entropy_of_vaporization
So I got an old pan, my Canon EOS and some courage and started to shoot images… one by one from still water to boiling water, vapour and an empty pan left with the colour powder I put in the water to optimise effects. I introduced several objects in the pan to observe effects and power forces in the system (the pan).
I finally digitalised the best photos and extracted patterns.
I then added the secret element… feelings, personality and Design skill to create a Digital Experience that expresses this process of Entropy. The result is a an ever lasting creation of new ideas with patterns already achieved.
