The Nonessential Essential

The Force of Embodiment, a hypothesis about a new fundamental force in nature and the intrinsic capacity of matter to reincarnate. Written from the perspective of an artist immersed in the scientific world, its language and theories and in collaboration with scientists from CERN, this artistic work presents the visualization and study of a hypothetical force, compared to known and proven forces, electroweak or electromagnetic forces, strong and gravitational forces. The proposed Force of Embodiment is impossible to prove scientifically but is coherent to the discourse of particle physics. Qualified as “poetic but not scientific” in the physics world, and being proud of this qualification, this hypothesis opens up a discussion on how far art can imagine itself into the world of particle physics.
