Quantum Art Lab
Since the beginning of the 20th century, quantum mechanics has radically modified the scientific vision of reality and has triggered numerous short circuits with art. In the quantum world, a particle can be found in several places at once; can cross a wall; and the famous Shrödinger cat can be alive and dead at the same time. The intimate behavior of matter is so anomalous that who says that it has a clear intuition of the functioning of the quantum world, surely has not understood it, according to the great physicist Richard Feynmann.
However, this discipline has systematically proved its validity. From mobile chips to magnetic resonance devices, much of the technology of the twentieth century could not be manufactured without the conclusions of quantum mechanics.
Within the framework of the Quantum World Association (QWA), Quo Artis has created the Quantum Art Lab, an artistic-scientific laboratory, made up of artists, technologists and scientists interested in establishing bridges between mechanics, quantum computing and art, and whose objective is the creation of an artistic piece.
They focus their action on reflection and artistic creation inspired by the contributions of that paradoxical branch of scientific thought and of great philosophical relevance: the emptiness, the discretization of the intimate substance of the universe, the essential randomness and indeterminacy, the superposition of states quantum, entanglement of particles, coherence, supersymmetry, quantum gates and oracles; all of them, fundamental pieces of an infinite puzzle that takes us to the rethinking of elements so essential for the understanding of our existence as for example the concepts of time, history and identity.
