Quantum mechanics’ uncertainty principle states that one cannot measure the position and momentum of a particle at the same time, because any attempt to measure its position in space will alter its momentum.
You can measure one parameter and ignore the other, but you can never know everything at once.
The end results are objects that clearly resemble their original form, but through a distorted view that skews perception. They’re visually interesting pieces — and perhaps a nice way to recycle used goods, too.
Oefner’s sculptures perfectly convey the idea of the uncertainty principle. The closer you try and focus on this camera as a whole, the less you notice the individual pieces, and vice-versa.
