Momentum by Alejandro Guijarro Symbolizes the Chaotic World

Momentum by Alejandro Guijarro, a photographer hailing from Spain, is a photo series that depicts post-lecture backboards at leading quantum mechanics research institutions. Although some may assume that the images would only appeal to like-minded scholars and mathematicians, the lines and scribbles will peak the interest of any individual. As Tristan Hoare, curator of the exhibit, notes "What began as a precise lecture, a description of the physicist’s thought process, is transformed into a canvas open to any number of possibilities."

Shot in such lecture halls at Oxford, Stanford and CERN, Momentum by Alejandro Guijarro represents the chaotic world, a place that is "ever-changing 'best-guess'," as written by Fast Co. Design. Every layer of chalk and erased theorem embodies this belief.
