Introduction

Quantum Jam presents "Quantum Poetics," an innovative art installation blending quantum superposition with poetry, creating a dynamic and immersive experience. Developed in collaboration with IBM and The New School, the project explores the integration of quantum computing and artistic expression.

Outcome

The centerpiece, Quantum Haiku Mirror, intertwines words and quantum states, inviting viewers to observe their interconnectedness. The project received accolades for its innovative application of quantum technology and was showcased as a Quantum Art Exhibitor at Microscopic Gallery.

Discover:

  • Collaboratively brainstormed ideas for our Design Sprint.

  • Articulated the concept and intent behind the installation, aligning it with the gallery's theme.

  • We tried to understand the requirements gallery had for the installations. Describe how it aligns with the theme or focus of the gallery.

Define:

  •  Explored innovative strategies to foster user-generated art through the visualizing screen, emphasizing user engagement and participation.

  • Leveraged Quantum Composer to explore and integrate quantum computing principles into the user generated art.

Development:

  • Developed JavaScript code for execution on a p5.js canvas.

  • Transform quantum data into poem generator, Design an experience to visualize entanglement and superposition. 

  • Build mirror display

Conclusion:

Utilizing quantum superposition as a metaphor, the installation becomes entangled and ambiguous when unobserved, revealing its true essence only when a spectator engages with it.

Design:

  • Analysis and Translation: Delved into the syllable structure of Haiku and translated it into qubit logic.

  • Circuit Development: Engineered a circuit to translate quantum data into a generator of poetic compositions.

  • Visual Design: Crafted entangled visual effects to enrich the mirror display experience.
