Pocket-size paradoxes, wisdom that clinks - this collection spotlights four hypothetical creatures from well-known thought experiments in physics. Presenting "paradoxical" scenarios while provoking deeper scrutiny of existing theories, they raised conceptual questions about determinism, free will, the limitation of modern sciences in capturing the complex nature of the universe...

In celebration of their lasting impacts, we humbly offer an artistic rendition of these theoretical constructs for some unorthodox wisdom to carry around.

"Schrödinger's Cat"

Once brawny and soaring with life, now motionless and flattened to ash – fate takes place in a coin flip. The triangle on the front represents stability; the four-pointed star on the reverse side embodies a radioactive atom discharging deadly beams of light.

"Laplace's Demon"

A majestic beast with feminine attributes is effortlessly manipulating moons in different lunar phases as if juggling celestial orbs. The back depicts an all-seeing eye watching attentively all that is unified by Newton's laws of motion.

"Zeno's Tortoise"

The front captures the race, juxtaposing speed and stillness. The beamlines and curves represent infinite division of space. The segmented clock face on the back is a visual reminder of the paradoxical nature of motion and the endless continuum of time.

"Maxwell's Demon"

The hole is the small door separating compartment A and B. The two sides depict the demon manipulating fast-moving and slow-moving molecules, respectively, capturing its remarkable selective control.
