Force Field (2016) & Quantum Lattice (2016)

Evelina Domnitch and Dmitry Gelfand, in their Synergetica laboratory, create physical manifestations of quantum behaviours, using liquid and magnetic fields. Their sonoluminescence installations create microlevitations of different materials. For No Such Thing As Gravity, the artists present a new work based on experiments with an Ion Trap: Force Field At the end of the 20th century, experiments with trapped ions enabled physicists to investigate the quantum behaviour of single isolated atoms for the very first time. Thirty years later, the ion trap has become a key instrument in particle physics and quantum computing, and provides the only means to capture and store antimatter.

Force Field is a collaboration with computational artist Paul Prudence, and was developed as part of an ENCAC residency at CTM, Berlin. Supported by The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in London.

Quantum Lattice was created in collaboration with RySQ (Rydberg Atom Quantum Simulator) as part of a FEAT residency (Future Emerging Art and Technology). This new work has been produced in collaboration with CERN, where the artists conducted a research residency, supported by the Department of Physics at University of Liverpool.
