Organised by Ice Tuxedo

Deadline for applications: Friday 8th July, 2016, Time: 6 pm

Random Orange is an International Open Call exhibition organised by Ice Tuxedo.  Artists are asked to apply with work that respond to an extract taken from ‘The Science in Science Fiction’ ed. Peter Nicholls, 1982, p. 91.

_____________________________

EXTRACT:

‘There are various intriguing science fiction notions concerning time that can only call upon very distant support from science.  A notable example is A.E. van Vogt’s novel The Weapon Shops of Isher, in which a man throws alternately, as if on a seesaw, increasingly distant past and futures, accumulates so much energy (for surely time travel requires energy) that when he finally explodes in the distant past, it is the intensity of this release of energy that catalyzes the creation of the Sun and the planets.  This is one of the ultimate time paradoxes.  More soberly, Ian Watson’s story “The Very Slow Time Machine’ tells of a future time traveller in a machine which, before it is projected even further into the future, must (like a catapult) first be very slowly pulled back into the past.  To battled present-day observers he seems to be experiencing normal duration, but in reverse.  There is a remote sense in which physics supports the relationship between time and energy that these stories rather vaguely suggest.  The initial energy of the Big Bang that gave birth to our universe is thought to be directly connected to the nature of time in the universe. We do not know exactly how much energy this was, but we do know that the greater the initial energy, the longer time itself will last before the universe reaches its hear-death or collapses back into a monobloc.’
