The third image in a series of Enchanted Spaces. Two ideas collided here.
I was seeing the image as a poetic visualisation of ‘The Field of the Cloth of Gold’, evocative and romantic words reaching beyond the Tudor history. These visualised perhaps as a banner above glinting armour with an earthy ground. The hearaldry of a mythic pomp and circumstance.
Learning of ‘phase transition’ via a radio discussion it (the image) seemed also to depict the description given by the physicist to explain this phenomenon. The edges where properties of matter change in different conditions were described as a volatile mix of structure and space.
So the golden cloth is at some level in a flux with more or less stable edges.
