For MOMENTUM, Alejandro Guijarro visited the quantum mechanics departments of various universities, including Cambridge, Stanford, Berkeley and Oxford. After lectures he photographed the large-scale blackboards that are now exhibited life-size. Outside of the institutions in which they originated, the meaning of the formulas changes. What started as a description of a physicist’s thought process gains a new aesthetic through the lines and forms of the equations and formulas; the marks left by the blackboard eraser are reminiscent of a vast landscape. In this way, the boards with precise formulas evolve into canvases that can have many different meanings.
