This was a commissioned piece done for a good friend.
I respect anyone who even knows the story behind Schrodinger’s cat – I REALLY respect someone who understands and can explain this thought experiment.
My friend can do this with ease – and she’s a chick that loves science! Awesome.
This was a fun, but challenging piece to create – their were a LOT of pieces that I just had to leave “float” and not connect to the surrounding wood. These pieces were cut out first and the waste pieces had to be saved to be used later as a guide when I later glued the “floaters” to the felt backing.
The piece measured around 9×12 and is solid white oak. It’s around 1/4 of an inch thick.
All pieces were first soaked in lemon oil and then a piece of thick black felt was attached to the back for contrast and a surface to affix the floating pieces.
