Quantum Entanglement

The following works are inspired by a relationship with my ex-girlfriend that left an indelible mark on my life and heart. When I was ready to move forward with the project, I had a painful idea to use my actual ex-girlfriend to play herself in the short films I would shoot about our life. Just like our relationship, the completion of this project was tumultuous, passionate, cathartic, filled with distrust, and ultimately, love. I named this series after a term my ex once used to describe our love, "Quantum Entanglement", and it is a homage to the long goodbye that is love. 

  Quantum entanglement  is a physical phenomenon that occurs when pairs or groups of particles are generated or interact in ways such that the quantum state of each particle cannot be described independently of the others, even when the particles are separated by a large distance—instead, a quantum state must be described for the system as a whole.  Simply put, it is love on the sub-atomic level. Imagine you're a packet of light (photon) hurling through the vast darkness of space seemingly alone. Yet, you're not. You have a partner, another photon who has been intimately connected to you since you were born. And no matter how much distance separates you, or time has passed, you are connected; whatever happens to one, happens to the other, eternally.

QE: PART I "What Never Was" 2017

Sometimes, the memories that we miss most in a past relationship, are the moments that never happened.

QE: PART II "Falling Rocks" 2017

QE: PART III "Transmutation" 2017

It is hard to keep track of every falling rock in a relationship. Each moment that contributes to the success or failure of a love can be difficult to sort. As you dig through the rubble of memories, you try and pinpoint where it all went wrong, and the very moment when you or the person you're involved with became someone completely different.

Sometimes it is only at the end that a relationship reveals what it is made of.
