The Physical Ball
Be curious and slow down: Curiosity is about appreciating the detail, about noticing things. Soren's Art lends itself beautifully to this. From a distance, you have one visual perspective, yet when you zoom in, a new and remarkable world opens up.
“The Physical Ball” explores the intimate relationship between the ball and the air. The image tells the story in words, numbers, graphs, and diagrams, about how the air in the ball makes it round and predictable when it is kicked and bounces, and about how the ball's surface interacts with the surrounding air and causes forces that let us control the ball's movements. The work is a tribute to the physical principles and laws that players unknowingly learn to take advantage of when they spend countless hours with their favorite toys.
