Entanglement: the beginnings.

The newest Fundamental Constants video is in the works! For this piece, titled Entanglement, my collaborator Eric Corwin and I are working with French theoretical physicist Maxime Clusel, PhD. Now our team includes 1 video artist, 1 experimentalist, and 1 theorist: I think we have our bases covered! Maxime, who is also a photographer, is bringing his own visual sensibility to the table in addition to brain-twisting ideas about quantum measurement.

At its most basic level, Entanglement is a love story that is guided by quantum mechanics. It involves a quantum pen, entangled letters, and a mysterious triangle of characters whose relationships are about to be determined by a single measurement. Alluring, no? You just wait.

More soon.
