The realm of infinite possibilities is the realm that quantum physics has been showing us that there are infinite dimensions and the infinite is expanding. The many worlds interpretation (MWI) theorizes that at the quantum level everything that could happen does happen, and that each possible outcome branches the universe into another which is at first identical aside from the alternative outcome. In 2005, I was diagnosed with "incurable" follicular lymphoma. After failing many rounds of chemo, radioimmunitherapy, and a stem cell transplant, my chances for survival after going through a second salvage stem cell transplant was not certain. In fact, one of my doctors told me that my survival was living proof that there is a God. Quantum mechanics also has an explanation. It could be that I was in one of the branched universes where miraculous survival is possible. If the many worlds interpretation is true, there will always be one branch where miraculous survival scenario is realized and that version of me will not die. In this body of work, I chose this technique to illustrate simultaneously occurring parallel universes within myself.
