Everyday objects are the source for Fabian Oefner’s artworks, Heisenberg Objects. The artist interprets quantum mechanic’s uncertainty principle into a sculptural series of segmented objects. The result are amazing Distorted Sculptures, that are worth seeing!

The distorted sculptures of the Heisenberg Series are based on Werner Heisenberg’s renowned Uncertainty Principle. The theory defends, that it’s not possible to measure two separate parameters of a particle simultaneously. The possibility is either to determine one parameter and ignore the other or vice versa, but you can never know everything at once.

The two contradicting views, the inner and outer layers of the everyday objects converge in Oefner’s distorted sculptures and reflect the principle through skewed perceptions. In the end, the sculptures have a strange effect on the one looking at them: From a distance, it’s easy to identify the object, but as one starts to get closer, the shape of the artwork starts to get distorted and dissolves completely.

As an observer, you are never able to observe the object as a whole and its inner workings simultaneously.  The more accurately we see one view, the less clearly we see the other.

The artist uses resin to solidify the common items, and then carefully sliced them into hundreds of individual parts! The last step is to rearrange the slices into a distorted new version of the object, that allows one to view its inner workings. The artists’ distorted sculptures include sneakers, a Leica M6, a tape recorder, a Seiko clock, and a flight recorder!
