"Lady in Wight" -Neal Robinson

There was a young lady of Wight
Who traveled much faster than light.
She departed one day,
In a relative way,
And arrived on the previous night.

In the Sum Over Histories Theory American scientist Richard Feynman put forth the idea that a particle in space-time
would go from point A to B by every possible path. Thus inspired by the human perception of time and space the Lady in Wight variants are rooted in the subject of quantum mechanics, a branch of mathematical physics that deals with atomic and subatomic systems.

Shot in three different locations around the country Miami Florida, Columbus Ohio, and Salt Lake City Utah, the pictures combine to form a photographic collage that explores the phenomena of a quantum universe. These images, which were taken mostly from airports, create a literal association about time travel. Board a plane in one state, exit in another, and you can gain or lose hours just by crossing a time zone. Travel far enough and long enough and one can even cross an international date line to gain or lose a day. The Lady in Wight pieces explore a multitude of questions. What changes when we finally abandon the idea of an absolute time and recognize that each observer has their own personal measurement? Since the laws of science do not distinguish between the past and future, why do we? What happens when we don’t?
