Strange Readings

 

 

Entanglement, 2010, 6:30 (excerpt)
in collaboration with Maxime Clusel, PhD, and Eric Corwin, PhD

Entanglement, a collaborative work by video artist Julia Oldham, experimental physicist Eric Corwin and theoretical physicist Maxime Clusel, is a love story guided by quantum mechanics. In the video, a character called J writes love/rejection letters on entangled sheets of paper with her quantum pen. Her entangled letters remain in a superposition of states, in which neither can be defined as love letter nor rejection letter, until a measurement is taken. This collaborative piece translates complex theoretical science into a simple narrative about human relationships.
