Quantum Logos will premiere at this years 40-anniversary Ars Electronica Festival at the 3D theatre Deep Space 8K!
The art-sci interactive experience Quantum Logos explores how the basics of quantum-theory expressed with cultural archetypes could shed new insights on natural phenomena, questioning what is the nature of existence through scientific observation.
The artwork with it´s universal appeal will provides intellectual and emotional access to quantum technology through visual artistic media. It has been executed as a real-time interactive experience employing a powerful virtual real-time rendering customized pallet all powered by code, and audio-reactive visualization.

EXPANDED ANIMATION SYMPOSIUM, OUT OF THE BOX: THE MIDLIFE CRISES OF THE DIGITAL REVOLUTION
Quantum theory challenges our fundamental assumptions about reality. Whether it believes that gravity warps time and space, or that the world does not exist independently of our observations of it, quantum physics is a challenge now as it was for Einstein and scientists of his day. Since the surrealism, artists have been engaging with the theory of relativity and quantum mechanics for creating mind-expanding digital performances. Art is continuing in helping us in understanding counterintuitive concepts of space, relativity, and dissonances of the physical world.
The Los Angeles and Singapore based media artists duo Mark Chavez and Ina Conradi teamed up with Germany based sci-art producer and developer Bianka Hofmann and Vienna based science communicator Bob Kastner, to form the art-sci collective Quantum Travelers.

Talk title: Quantum Logos
The collective’s long term aim is to use cultural metaphors to artistically describe ambitious and crucial scientific concepts with an emphasis on describing scientific insights in Quantum theory that have a real and substantial effect on society and culture. The first result from this collaboration, the immersive, interactive artwork named Quantum Logos will premier in the Deep Space during this year’s Ars Electronica festival. The art-sci interactive experience Quantum Logos explores how the basics of quantum-theory expressed with cultural archetypes could shed new insights into natural phenomena, questioning what is the nature of existence through scientific observation. Besides the process behind the artwork, the talk will highlight preliminary experiments into the integration of art-sci with the teaching curriculum in Nanyang Technological University Singapore. The goal is to create a new awareness in the interconnection between the realm of art and science for an innovative media art education.
