My recent work captures the unknowable in nature – described in science as quantum mechanics. The so-called "uncertainty principle" describes how we cannot know both position and momentum at the same time. Here I depict the unknowable momentum as being confined by a variety geometric forms, like those symmetries that confine nature. The triangular symmetry confines the moving, whirling ink droplets within its boundaries.
