EINSTEIN IN TIME AND SPACE

 
2011
Assemblage: 19" x 14"

Photographic Editions: Archival Ink on Cotton Rag

Walter Isaacson's 'Einstein: The Life and Universe' was the inspiration for my piece 'Einstein in Time and Space'. The original assemblage portrays what is commonly known as 'The Train Paradox' (pictured at bottom of image), is a popular tool used to help explain Einstein's Theory of Relativity. The pocket watches were all taken apart with the faces replaced by the corresponding section of the Einstein portrait, and the hands then placed on top of those. My wish is for my portrait to inspire those who already know about the theory of relativity, and to peak the curiosity and interest of those who want to know about Albert Einstein's secrets of the Universe.
