A Pea Can Be Chopped Up and Reassembled into the Sun
Phomohobes, Paul Robles, Gerry Ruecker, Rhayne Vermette
curated by Sandee Moore
The Banach–Tarski paradox in geometry proves the counter-intuitive idea that "a pea can be chopped up and reassembled into the Sun." While cutting up and reassembling a ball to increase its volume confounds basic geometric intuition, the notion that the blade is not destructive but creative is familiar magic to collage artists.
The four artists and collectives - Phomohobes, Paul Robles, Gerry Ruecker, and Rhayne Vermette - in A Pea Can Be Chopped Up and Reassembled into the Sun skew norms and uncover new ways of thinking about the world generated by illogical juxtaposition.
