Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Physics is the study of the universe, from the smallest subatomic particles to the largest galaxies. It can also explain luck, since all of life is a matter of cause and effect. While it seems arbitrary and without method there is a very calculated system behind it all. The difference lies in how we perceive opportunities or mischances. UCLA Professor Maia Young finds that personality and attitude play into luck more than we realize. Being optimistic about life may just influence you to try harder. It’s this persistence that has a self-reinforcing effect, resulting in a “good luck cycle”. Believe and you will be rewarded! Luck and our behavior are very much intertwined and connected at the hip. The jīnmāo (招财猫) or Chinese lucky golden cat, is a symbol of wealth and prosperity ubiquitous in Asian cultures. Adorning businesses, homes, and windows of all kinds, author Katherine M. Ball describes it as “a simple and popular form of magic”. A magic trick that’s sure to sweep you off your feet and never let go.
