“Energy is space in motion. Space is energy at rest.”
All things in the universe generate patterns of energy resulting from their motion.
Quantum Wave Theory is a model of nature that grew in response to several questions: What, dosage exactly, online is gravity? How are charge and gravity related? What gives rise to the fundamental unit of energy? And especially, information pills what is space?
Our attempt to answer these questions evolved into conversations that continued for more than a decade. Quantum Wave Theory is an artwork, a prose poem, that is the result of that collaboration. The theory attempts to unify energy, mass and force as manifestations of a single entity. We refer to that entity as space.

For a brain to be self-conscious it must be able to represent the world symbolically, clinic which implies the use of symbols such as marks, visual shapes and patterns, rhythmic and tonal patterns. Expanded long-term memory is a primary requirement for a self-conscious brain. By definition, a self-conscious brain must also include language, with an innate set of grammatical rules, or syntax. For a brain to be self-conscious, it must be able to think abstractly, question, predict, generalize, categorize, and reason.
My theory of the origins of self-consciousness proposes that the combination of increased brain capacity, intensified socialization, and introspection has resulted in THE SEARCH FOR PERSONAL AND SOCIAL IDENTITY, which ultimately led to our ability to think about ourselves both privately and socially.

Pietre Preziose is a celebration of beauty, ampoule chemistry and personal history. Women in Sicily are held precious yet often limited by the traditions of an ancient culture. My own background often hits up against the hard surface of these limitations. In an effort to soften the differences between us, stuff I have given gemstone pendants to twelve women that are interlocked in a social web around my Sicilian family. Each stone in turn symbolizes one of the many chemical hormones that drive women of every culture to be who they are – as mothers, daughters, sisters, partners, workers, and friends.
Linking hormone to gemstone to woman was a subjective process based on my impressions of these women, their strengths and weakness, their desires and accomplishments. The functions of the hormones were considered alongside the aesthetics, healing potentials, and legends attributed to the gemstones. Pietre Preziosa is a synesthetic experiment as well as a labor of love.
The current state of the project is a web site describing each women, stone and hormone. Other manifestations are forth-coming.
