Marzia Frozen is pleased to announce an international
group exhibition of a new generation of artists working today. This will
be a group exhibition at MARZIA FROZEN in Berlin, and will feature a
selection of paintings, sculptures, photographs, performances
and videos.

Quantum gravity (QG) is a field of
theoretical physics that seeks to describe the force of
gravity according to the principles of quantum mechanics .

The current understanding of gravity is based on
Albert Einstein’s general theory
of relativity, which is formulated within the framework of classical
physics. On the other hand, the non gravitational
forces are described within the framework of quantum mechanics, a
radically different formalism for describing physical phenomena based
on probability. The necessity of a quantum mechanical description of
gravity follows from the fact that one cannot consistently couple a
classical system to a quantum one.

Strictly speaking, the aim of quantum gravity is only to describe the
quantum behavior of the gravitational field and should not be confused
with the objective of unifying all fundamental
interactions into a single mathematical framework. Although some
quantum gravity theories such as string theory try to unify
gravity with the other fundamental forces, others such as loop
quantum gravity make no such attempt; instead, they make an effort to
quantize the gravitational field while it is kept separate from the other
forces. A theory of quantum gravity that is also a grand
unification of all known interactions is sometimes referred to as
a theory of everything (TOE).

Much of the difficulty in meshing these theories at all energy scales
comes from the different assumptions that these theories make on how the
universe works. Quantum field theory depends on particle
fields embedded in the flat space-time of special relativity. General
relativity models gravity as a curvature within space-time
that changes as a gravitational mass moves. Historically, the most obvious
way of combining the two (such as treating gravity as simply another
particle field) ran quickly into what is known as the
renormalization problem. In the old-fashioned understanding of
renormalization, gravity particles would attract each other and adding
together all of the interactions results in many infinite values which
cannot easily be cancelled out mathematically to yield sensible, finite
results. This is in contrast with quantum electrodynamics
where, given that the series still do not converge, the interactions
sometimes evaluate to infinite results, but those are few enough in number
to be removable via renormalization.
