Emulate is an exploration of human emotion and duality and how they integrate into the subjective human experience. I wanted to explore these concepts from an overarching universal perspective, and create moving illustrations that maintained some visual ambiguity, so that the viewers could attach their own emotions and experiences to the sequences.
During my research into duality I discovered that within the smallest scales of energy and matter in the universe, there exists the theory of wave-particle duality, which became the core visual concept of the video. It hypothesizes that singular matter at its sub-atomic and even atomic levels, not only exist in particles, but also simultaneously as waves. As Albert Einstein put it, “It seems as though we must use sometimes the one theory and sometimes the other, while at times we may use either. We are faced with a new kind of difficulty. We have two contradictory pictures of reality; separately neither of them fully explains the phenomena of light, but together they do.”
