Consciousness, quantum mechanics and the Metaphase Typewriter revival project
MetadataShow full item record
I make artwork that engages with quantum mechanics to enable the viewer to doubt conventional reality. Quantum mechanics gives significant cause to doubt conventional reality. Rather than reality being knowable, objective and mind-independent, one quantum theory poses the confronting possibility that reality is brought into existence through observations, even, controversially, by consciousness. My 'mind works' projects, one of which is the Metaphase Typewriter revival project, enables a viewer to doubt conventional reality. Specifically, the 'mind works' projects do this by providing the viewer opportunities to interact with events of quantum superposition, using only consciousness, to arguably affect or even create material reality.
