Ralph Helmick's "Disorders of Magnitude"
Lo here, taking a break from the sex writing for just a day to talk about art. Did you see that cool wall installation made from staples by Baptiste Debombourg that Matthew wrote about the other day? I loved it too. Then, just yesterday, I got a letter from my first cousin once removed, the incredibly talented and hugely successful sculptor Ralph Helmick, that included an announcement for his most recent project “Disorders of Magnitude” — which reminded me of the same kind of innovation and technical skill employed by Debombourg. It’s a portrait of Werner Heisenberg (1901-1976) — the physicist best known for his Uncertainty Principle — using instruments that measure time and space hung from the ceiling: “While the composition appears to be random, the suspended elements coalesce into a likeness of the scientist when viewed from a single, unique perspective (the anamorphic phenomenon)…Biographical subtext aside, Disorders of Magnitude is a metaphor for the elusiveness of knowing oneself or others.” Far out!
