Libby Heaney
Thinking Quantum

26 Apr 2022


Panel Talk about the future of quantum computing, its applications and how it impacts the cultural field

Panel Talk with Libby Heaney (Artist and Quantum Physicist), Ariane Koek (Producer, Writer, Curator) and Anna Pappa (Quantum Computer Scientist), moderated by Amira Gad (Head of Programmes at LAS).

Inside the artwork Ent- that Libby Heaney built based on quantum-coding, the artist and quantum physicist is joined live by independent cultural producer, curator and writer Ariane Koek and quantum computer scientist Anna Pappa to discuss the future of quantum computing, its applications and how it impacts the cultural field.

Moderated by LAS’s Head of Programmes Amira Gad, the panellists explore what metaphorical resonance and disparities can be uncovered when quantum principles are applied to our imagination, and how ‘thinking quantum’ can shape the future of science and art alike.

A series of live programming around Libby Heaney's new commission Ent- with artists, musicians, key leaders from the world of quantum

On the occasion of Libby Heaney's solo exhibition Ent-, LAS and the Schering Stiftung join forces to present a series of talks and live events to take place in the closing month of the show. Through a variety of formats, the programme brings together voices from the fields of art and science, and tackles the complexities of future quantum technologies. By fostering interdisciplinary bridges, the events further Heaney’s ambition to build a collective understanding of the potentials of the quantum age.
