It was Aristotle who first argued that the whole is something greater than the sum of its parts. More recently, quantum physicists have argued for the existence of a unified field in which all particles and forces exist. This essential yet provocative new work explores whether new theories of social media, particle behavior and genetic mutation support an understanding of the universe as a complex adaptive system with emergent consciousness. "The works by James Angel exhibited at Modified Arts prompt reflection on adaptive and non-adaptive systems within individuals, societies, the known natural world, and the greater universe." -Lynn Trimble, Arts Writer
