The concept of Entropy was introduced by Rudolf Clausius in 1865 and is still one of the basic concepts in physics, probability theory, information theory, mathematics and many other areas of theoretical and applied sciences. It is applicable wherever one works with the probability of possible states of a given system.
For the purposes of the humanities, this concept has been adopted as a thesis describing physical events in nature, the transformations of which can be observed, for example, in painting. The specificity of this medium is the direct simultaneity of the aesthetic experience that takes place during the painting itself and its transcendence when communing with a work of art. A characteristic feature of such events is, for example, that they are determined post factum. Due to the collective consciousness, such a creative process has an indirect impact on human consciousness, for example through the emotional and intellectual states of the creator that accompanies him during his work. The aesthetic experience of these images is varied and depends on the tensions that arise in direct contact with them, on the holistic perception of the work and discovering it layer by layer. In relation to the viewer, the images become a manifestation of life itself.
