SPIN LIKE YOU ARE ENTANGLED


Interactive Sculptural Installation: Steel sculpture, speakers, Mac mini, MS Kinect, Processing software.  2012.

Spin Like You Are Entangled uses the phenomena know as quantum entanglement as the conceptual cornerstone of this interactive installation.

Participants approach a suspended steel figure. As they come closer, the volume of a spoken explanation of quantum entanglement grows louder and louder. As they walk away, the volume drops. Technology includes a Microsoft Kinect to sense when space is being occupied, which is then run through Processing code to adjust the volume.

From LiveScience.com:
"In quantum physics, entangled particles remain connected so that actions performed on one affect the other."
