Project Description

Series

Entropia*

*Entropy. Lack of order or predictability; gradual decline into disorder.

The degradation of the matter and energy in the universe to an ultimate state of inert uniformity. Chaos, Disorganization and Randomness, this is entropy. It might sound horrible and even scary, but that is the reality where we live every day. It’s hard to say something certain of our reality, but one thing is certain, entropy will not stop.

Entropia series is like a chaos mode in my camera. It’s is something that I’ve always done and it is always exiting. For me it’s a way to push my technical limits in photography and a way to discover something new. This method also is very relaxing, because it depends lot from luck. There are no rules, there is no order. There is only unrepeatable array of random photons, stuck in the mirror of my camera. There is no way that you could plan ahead what kind of photograph you will get by this method. There is no way to repeat the photo you took a second ago. You may use this method on familiar object, but end up with alien results.

When you think of life, it is the same.

Whole universe is like a big egg in a state of exploding. Our universe is like a tiny crack on the shell. A crack that will break into even tinier parts as fast as the crack appeared in the first place.  The egg will keep breaking into smaller and smaller parts, until some day, there is a broken egg on the “floor”. We are living in this explosion.

I find myself relaxing, when I think that no matter what we do, the egg is going to get smashed. I think it is better to enjoy this roller coaster, rather than trying to control something that you can not control. Like we don’t see snow floating back to the sky, we don’t see our lives getting any simpler as we get the next promotion. Trying to replicate some of our past experiences will never work, the broken egg will never “explode” back to its original form.

Only thing we really have is now.
