Where are you?

E=mc2 is the famous equation developed by Albert Einstein. E stands for energy, m stands for mass and c is the speed of light. In a nutshell the equation tells us that mass and energy are the same thing. At a subatomic level we are no more than layers of energy fields creating the illusion of solidity. 

We are made up empty space. Our understanding of the physical world is limited by the veil of our perceptions. This piece zooms subatomic space to the resolution of human understanding. It gives us the opportunity to digest how matter is a matter of perception.
