particle theory

what is the true nature of our bodies?

particle theory is a collage of 1064 small squares of paper cut from images in fashion magazines and catalogues

when we look closer, at the scale of particles or atoms, our flesh, our clothes and the air/environment around us all become indistinguishable, in a similar way that when we look at distant galaxies containing billions of stars, they seem to be static and motionless. what is the true nature of our bodies? is it these particles, which act together in mathematical relationships that often seem beyond rational thought, or is it in the smooth curves of flesh that give us physical identity and feed our desires?
