“Quantum computing is a step forward in understanding ourselves, the world and our place in it in new plural and relational ways.” – Libby Heaney

Follow artist and quantum physicist Libby Heaney as she plays Hivemind, a virtual knowledge game created by Trust. Heaney will use Hivemind to explore the new logic systems made available to us through quantum mechanics. She’s modified the game environment, transforming it into a quantum Hivemind that she describes as a “non-linear labyrinth that weaves together multiplicities, entanglements and collapses to let us peer into the futures of quantum computing through art.” During the stream, Heaney will be joined by arebyte curator Rebecca Edwards, arebyte producer Nimco Kulmiye and Serpentine Curator Eva Jäger (as Orb).
