“Voices, Echoes, Reflections” is a site-specific installation and series of performative gestures,
based on conversations exploring entropy, the butterfly effect, and integral thought (the idea that
the universe is an integrated whole in which all living beings are elements in an interconnected biosphere).
Connection, infinitesimal changes, the flow of events in time – entropy is an intangible measurement
of the transformation of all phenomena in the universe. A butterfly flutters its wings in the forest of
Darmstadt and, as a result, the consciousness of a poet in California may shift, ever so slightly. A
thought is experienced, creativity, awareness, feelings- everything is connected in an interactive
physical and spiritual matrix. Our dialogue began with questions about what happens in the seams of
existence. What happens to our thoughts, our sensations, and our feelings once they have occurred?
What happens to our souls? Entropy, ever increasing, is a consequence of everything that happens in
the universe, everything that we are, everything that we have ever been and everything that we ever
will be. Entropy points the direction of all things in the time continuum.
