Theoretical physicist and String theorist Leonard Susskind speaks of a “landscape” of strings: a base field from which everything else up the atomic scale would emerge. This landscape is within everything, and is everywhere. Using a script by Tomasz Sulej that lays lines from an existing image, these images explore visually this landscape that can never be seen, not least because we could never see fast enough to capture it’s topology, especially for an instant. Yet its topology creates the very reality we actually see before us, including us.

Format: Bitmap graphics, computational media
Software: Processing.app + Threadraw (javascript by Tomasz Sulej), Polarr Photo Editor, Focus CK, Adobe Photoshop
Base image: A Charged Shape (2010) by Brandon Morse
