"Jesus said: I am the light that is over them all. I am the All; the All has come forth from me, and the All has attained unto me. Cleave a piece of wood: and I am there. Raise up the stone, and you shall find me there."

Our world is unimaginably complex. Information is everywhere. Autonomous agents and systems act and interact, everywhere, with each other, and in ways that are impossible to predict or truly understand. This complexity seems at to offer limitless possibility, while our reality is in fact bounded by discrete laws of natures. What becomes truly interesting then are the limitless ways in which we human agents, ascribe meaning and significance to all that we experience.

This piece explores the idea of miraculous coincidence, pareidolia, apophenia, and what kinds of systems might exist in the real world for the creation of mysterious phenomena, and miraculous imagery.

Here are some images of the piece in installation.
