Artist's description:

two things at once

The Austrian physicist Erwin Schrödinger (1887-1961) raised a conundrum by linking the fate of a cat in a box to a standard idea in quantum mechanics - with the implication that in theory, the cat could be both alive and dead at the same time.

I imagine scientists are serious people, undertaking their work in a quiet corner. However, every so often they may be required to present their ideas and observations before an audience; the scientist must then become a showman. Schrödinger managed social situations with a whimsical smile and a cheerful outlook. His love of life sometimes led him down remoter roads but he never lost his good humour and modest demeanour. He once remarked that “science cannot tell us a word about why music delights us, of why and how an old song can move us to tears.”

This print is pulled from a relief plate cut from a sheet of rubber, a variation of letterpress. After removal of areas that are to be left as white paper, the rubber sheet is then rolled up with ink and pressed to paper, producing the print. The completed edition made 7 copies. The paper and ink are of high quality and should present no keeping difficulty. The print would fit straight into a 10x12 inch frame if required.

Materials used:
