Ars Electronica 2021 – Quantum Music Project

Schaller & Tschinkel

For the Open Call Ars Elecronica 2021 with the theme Quantum music we delved into the science of quantum mechanics.

Together with Christian Tschinkel we developed an artistic concept for a video-sound installation based on the findings of the Bose-Einstein-Condensate (BEC) which will be realized at Ars Electronica 2021.

We collaborate with the quantum physicist Prof. Dr. Rupert Ursin at the Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information at the University of Vienna, who accompanies the project scientifically.

What is Reality

In times like these, the year 2020, it is perhaps more apparent than ever before how differently and subjectively one’s own reality is related to a so-called objective reality.
There is currently one common theme for all of humanity on the planet which every human individual experiences, absorbs and reacts to differently.
Every human being is confronted with different emotions (such as fear, powerlessness, serenity, etc.) and with a different trust in relevant authorities (such as governments, mass media, scientists, etc.) in a world where a clear positioning and visualization of the own consciousness comes to light.

But what is reality ?

Based on the study of quantum physics, various philosophical-transcendental teachings and subjective experiences, I play with the concept of reality and expand the conventional materialistic view of reality with projects that can be understood as real and not real.
