God’s Dice is an interactive digital installation and sculpture, where a physical object – a wooden octahedron ‘die’ – is remotely connected to a screen based copy of itself. When the physical object is rotated, the digital version follows.
This work draws on discussions between Einstein and others around the true nature of reality:
“Quantum mechanics is certainly imposing. But an inner voice tells me that it is not yet the real thing. The theory says a lot, but does not really bring us any closer to the secret of the “old one.” I, at any rate, am convinced that He does not throw dice.” Einstein 1926.
“As I have said so many times, God doesn’t play dice with the world.” Einstein 1943.
“So God does play dice with the universe. All the evidence points to him being an inveterate gambler, who throws the dice on every possible occasion.” Stephen Hawking.
The work was presented at Bargehouse, Oxo Tower Wharf.
