Imagining quantum computer art – my two part blog for the V&A

Posted on: June 10th, 2017 by libby

I have been running a research project with the Systems Research Group for the Royal College of Art in collaboration with the Centre for Quantum Photonics at the University of Bristol and the V&A museum exploring what it might mean to make artworks with emerging quantum technologies.

How can we make artworks using technologies from the edge of our understanding?

Alongside some of my students, I set out to answer this question, and presented the outcomes of this project at the V&A in May and exhibited the works last week at White City Place.  V&A digital art curator Melanie Lenz invited me to write an article for the V&A blog about the collaboration and the works, which you can read here and here.
