"The Curiosity Chronicles" (好奇法则)
"The Curiosity Chronicles"  by island6 Art Collective (Liu Dao)
// BLURB //
Schrödinger's cat was both alive and dead as long as nobody opened the box, and it was the very act of opening and looking inside said box that made the cat either dead or alive. Although a quantum physics question, its more philosophical counterpart raises similar queries. If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it does it make a sound? Is there correlation between existence and acknowledgement? Philosopher René Descartes summarizes the concept of being with three Latin words, “cogito ergo sum”, or most famously known as “I think therefore I am”. He deduced that the act of thinking about one’s existence was enough evidence to prove that you exist! Is your head spinning in circles yet? My point being, there are literally billions of people playing out stories in their own little box that you’ll never know about. Billions exist without you knowing, and although you do exist here reading these words, you also don’t exist to billions of people. You are both dead and alive at the same time, just like a curious cat in front of a moving image.
