Alexandra Silverthorne uses the camera as a means to understand and explore spatial environments and encounters. As projects evolve, her photographs often move beyond the mat and the frame to become sculptural objects, projections, and installations. Current projects include the examination of conceived, perceived, and lived space, instinctual explorations of architectural structures, and nocturnal documentation of unfamiliar landscapes.
The issue of the deterioration of the sense of community in American society has been pointed out in the book Bowling Alone: The Collapse And Revival of American Community, and is a core issue in improving the country’s standard of living. Cooperative home ownership helps build “social capital” by changing the relationship of “neighbors” from a loose network of independent people we live next to, to an interdependent network of individuals working to improve their living conditions.
Steve Weinberg, winner of the Nobel Prize, compares it to the following. Think of radio. If you’re inside your living room listening to BBC radio, that radio is tuned to one frequency. But in your living room there are all frequencies – radio Cuba, radio Moscow, the Top 40 rock stations. All these radio frequencies are vibrating inside your living room, but your radio is only tuned to one frequency. Now, in other words when two universes are in phase, they are coherent and you can move back and forth. But as time starts to evolve, these two universes decouple. They start to vibrate at different frequencies. They can no longer interfere with each other. So why is it that your radio cannot listen to Radio Moscow? Why isn’t it possible for your radio to listen to all frequencies? Because your radio is decohered. It is no longer vibrating in unison with these other frequencies.
Grey’s unique series of 21 life-sized paintings, the Sacred Mirrors, take the viewer on a journey toward their own divine nature by examining, in detail, the body, mind, and spirit. The Sacred Mirrors, present the physical and subtle anatomy of an individual in the context of cosmic, biological and technological evolution.
Lead by Prof. Guy Deutscher, a leading physicist in the field of superconductivity. We are studying the, yet unknown, mechanism of superconductivity in high temperature superconductors. We are also dedicated to making the amazing physics of superconductors accessible and exciting for young and adults through the unique and counter-intuitive phenomena of ‘quantum trapping’ and ‘quantum levitation’
While in the short-term balancing the budget would require massive spending cuts that would result in increased job losses and a further decline in revenues (and then more cuts), ideally the government should easily be able to balance its budget (and preserve the social safety net) by increasing revenues by taxing the super-rich and closing corporate tax loopholes, as well as ending costly military adventurism overseas and cutting the defense budget … There are two standards in America. One for the rich and corporations, and one for the rest of society.
