A collection of OMIs ©  Lena Ghio, 2020 

FRANÇAIS app de traduction à gauche

I am a transdisciplinary artist :

Trans hereby stands for across and beyond. In a way, that means that the transdisciplinary artist blends all the pieces of knowledge and skill together, and creates art that we cannot define through the canons that specify genres as we know them. From

*The scientific interest that underlies my work is the theoretical physics of the theory of everything:

A theory of everything (TOE[1] or ToE), final theory, ultimate theory, or master theory is a hypothetical single, all-encompassing, coherent theoretical framework of physics that fully explains and links together all physical aspects of the universe.[2]:6   

The operating equation I explore with my art practice is:

E = MC squared /  G + RF = T + S

Energy equals Matter (divided by) Gravity + Rolling Force equals Time + Space

I began my exploration of how gravity affects our lives by producing OMIs, Objects of Mystical Importance. These pieces each have a precise relationship with time and space ( T + S ) that should determine many facets of their existence: from their appearance to livings space to owner: in the passage of time. The calculations are those of the above equation.

After observing that clouds have a tendency to form human features during certain planetary alignments I designed an experiment to verify if there was a calculable element to the phenomena. I got a positive result on three different circumstances where there was an approaching eclipse.

The above lemon tree was planted during similar planetary alignments as those that produced the face in the clouds. Because the approaching New Moon was at sunrise I could not photograph the impact of the increased gravity on cloud formations so I decided to explore the impact of gravity on plants. There was one lemon tree that reacted to the message of gravity.

Emerge Art  ©  Lena Ghio, 2020 
In 2013 I photographed the first Emerge Art. This art form could only be produced with our current technology. Digital cameras record everything they see and our methods of filtering and purifying images reveal extraordinary imagery. The name of the practice comes from the theory of emergence

In philosophysystems theoryscience, and artemergence occurs when an entity is observed to have properties its parts do not have on their own. These properties or behaviors emerge only when the parts interact in a wider whole.
An example of process to create Emerge Art  ©  Lena Ghio, 2020 
The gif above and the image below illustrate the process I use to provoke the mysterious response in water. I prepare an installation, a written comment and place the bowl of water in it. The example here is fascinating as it shows the beautiful face clarified below advancing and retreating in the water.

The above sequence produced a lovely figure that is seen more clearly when filtered with more brightness.
