‘Quantum’ Art Project By CERN with Foundation for Art & Creative Technology Inspired by Quantum Physics
(JerusalemPost) An international project of the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Geneva, in collaboration with the Foundation for Art and Creative Technology (FACT) in Liverpool, brought together a group of artists and challenged them to draw inspiration from quantum physics.
The project culminated in an exhibition at the Center of Contemporary Culture of Barcelona (CCCB) called Quantum, where 10 artistic projects now convey that the impact of quantum physics goes way beyond laboratories and university halls.
One of these projects, Quantum Universe, is a virtual particle generator that shows the shape of particles based on scientific evidence and is curated by Alex Posada.
“Perhaps the most important influence of science on the arts is in our fundamental picture of the nature and origin of the universe as a whole,” writes Frederick Turner in his essay “Quantum Theory and the Arts.” “Perhaps the most important effect of quantum theory on the arts in general is as a kind of reminder and challenge.”
