Since the beginning of the 20th century, quantum mechanics has radically changed the scientific vision of reality and has propelled numerous shortcuts within art. In the quantum world, a particle can be in several places at the same time; it can go through a wall; and in the case of Schrödinger’s famous cat experiment, the cat can be both dead and alive. The behavior of matter is so anomalous that if you think you understand quantum mechanics, you don’t understand quantum mechanics, as the great physicist Richard Feynmann said. Nevertheless, this discipline has been systematically proven to work. From mobile sim cards to magnetic resonance devices, a substantial amount of 20th century technology would not be possible without knowledge of quantum mechanics.
Quantum Art Lab is an artistic-scientific laboratory, formed by artists, technologists and scientists interested in establishing bridges between mechanics, quantum computing and art, and aims to create an artistic piece.
The Foundation also plans to produce different activities that reflect on the quantum topic.
