POTD: Moving Toward Entropy #1

POTD: Moving Toward Entropy #1Moving Toward Entropy #1 Bozeman, Montana 2013

There are very precise definitions of entropy in the context of statistics, information theory, and physics; all of which can apply somewhat to what I’m trying to explore this new series of photos. But I think it’s more aptly described by two related definitions I found in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary:

a : the degradation of the matter and energy in the universe to an ultimate state of inert uniformity

b : a process of degradation or running down or a trend to disorder.

I have more photos related to this theme and I’ll post them with some further explanation, as soon I flesh it out further in my own mind; it’s a pretty nebulous idea at this point.

  1. I’m glad you defined entrophy. It wasn’t in my desk dictionary and google wasn’t particularly enlightening to me. Guess it’s not part of my language, but it maybe I will “get it” as your entrophy series continues. You Blackwoods…. always educating!

    1. I can’t say entropy is part of my usual language either but it is an interesting concept both in its technical and nontechnical meanings. Hopefully I can do it justice artistically as well.
