A Portrait of Incompatible Views: Collaboration with a physicist 2 (video)

A new video work about two state quantum system (qubit)

二状態量子学について。

This film is an art-science collaboration on the topic of incompatible observables in quantum mechanics.  There is a lone hut in the middle of a forest where the viewer tries to observe what a strange man is doing inside. Depending on how the man is viewed, he mysteriously changes in some way.  To ensure that there is no mistake, the viewer checks and re-checks the result.  All the results are consistent with the rules of quantum mechanics.

The film is a collaboration between Japanese contemporary artist Kyoko Ebata (http://kyokoebata.com/) and Australian quantum physicist Tim Byrnes (http://nyu.timbyrnes.net/).  Ebata works in various mediums including photography, video, and performance. She works on diverse projects, each employing a concrete poetics to investigate or circumscribe subjects which are felt as absent, abstract, or invisible.  Byrnes works on applications of various quantum systems such as Bose-Einstein condensates to quantum technologies.
