Quantum Breathing

Quantum Breathing is an installation centred around a VR experience. The work was commissioned by Science at Home, University of Aarhus and Non-Space Gallery, Aarhus to explore future impacts of quantum computing, in relation to our privacy and desires. The work was shown as a solo exhibition as part of the official programme for the 2017 EU Capital of Culture in Aarhus, Denmark.

Artist Libby Heaney collaborates with the Aniversity of Aarhus to explore parallel universes at the intersection of art, science, technology and ethics.

“Research is research, the purity of science often hurts many people”.

“Are you bold or are you timid? We all carry around this great unexplored elephant graveyard inside us”.

“You are the black box”

Taking inspiration from Murakami’s novel ‘Hard Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World’, Quantum Breathing is an immersive installation centred on an interactive virtual reality experience. The installation takes the audience into QVR Corp’s offices and speculates about a new technology that entices individuals with ‘bespoke’ generative virtual visuals while using a brain interface and the power of quantum computing to extract private data.

Brandon Tay collaborated on the visuals/UX and Jesper Jensen on the quantum simulations.
