  1. Hi,

    I am a MFA curating student at goldsmiths and i am doing research in the idea of super-postion. This is, as you probably know, use in quantum physics to describe how atoms can change their behavior when being observed. I have found some examples of work, but is still looking , maybe you have some suggestions as you seem to have research some artists.
    Or maybe there is a similar reaction in geology ? With cells or animals or something ? Just if you have something ?

  2. Hi Iben,
    You have probably come across the Rioji Ikeda piece: http://www.barbican.org.uk/music/event-detail.asp?ID=14026
    And this poem: http://www.redividerjournal.org/the-superposition-of-the-atom/
    It depends on what aspect of superposition you are interested in. Of course, there is superposition in geology, but it means something quite different from superposition in quantum physics. Are you more interested in the limitation of possibility e.g. as in Schroedinger’s Cat, double slit experiment; in superposition and scale; or more in the different meanings of ‘superposition’ in different contexts? You may also want to get in touch with the Arts Catalyst or some of the artists on the MA Art and Science at Central Saint Martins. Quite a few of them are working on quantum mechanics. The second year’s have their research interests up here: http://www.csm.arts.ac.uk/courses/ma-art-and-science/student-research-profiles/ They might be able to help you. Will let you know if I come across anything.
    Good luck!
    Angela
