Libby’s new virtual reality artwork has been commissioned by the Science Gallery Dublin as part of their Fake exhibition.
Science Gallery Dublin is a world first — a venue where today’s white-hot scientific issues are thrashed out. A place where science and art collide. Since opening in 2008, nearly 3 million people have visited the Science Gallery Dublin — ranking it among the top ten free cultural attractions in Ireland.
About Quantum Fake:
In an age of ubiquitous digital reproduction, is there any way to safeguard information so it cannot be copied? Quantum Fake is a virtual reality experience inspired by the concepts underpinning quantum cryptography. At the atomic scale, deep in the realm of quantum mechanics, any information that is unknown (to a person or to a light ray, for instance) is forever secret and cannot be copied. The artwork casts this logic over the gallery, as some viewers encounter a world where our usual perceptions of time, space and form are transformed.
The work will be exhibited at the Science Gallery until June 2018.
