    Exhibition. Le Cube Garges, April 27 – May 18

    Interactive light installation

    Composed of more than 1000 tactile metal springs, Quantum Jungle is an interactive artistic installation which allows to apprehend and to visualize in an extremely playful way certain concepts of quantum physics. By calculating the Schrödinger equation to model the motion of a quantum particle, it demonstrates concepts such as superposition, interference, wave-particle duality and quantum waveform collapse. By maintaining a playful approach that attracts children and adults alike, the device arouses curiosity and wonder and allows us to understand the invisible physical laws that govern our universe.

    Realized by Berlin-based game artist Robin Baumgarten in collaboration with a team of quantum physicists headed by Prof. Sabrina Maniscalco (Aalto University and University of Turku), and Prof. Marilu Chiofalo (University of Pisa), the piece is an interactive light installation which was installed at Palazzo Blu in Pisa until April 2022.
