'Spin Streamer YouTube' Final roundThe Center for Quantum Nanoscience (QNS) is holding an art contest called 'SPIN ART' to share the excitement of basic science with you. Here, we present 5 candidates of the final round for the 'Spin Streamer YouTube Prize.' The concept of quantum science exists in our daily lives, and the artists expressed the beauty of it in their own voices. Please watch the videos, and vote for the videos you like by clicking 'like' on YouTube. The video that receives the most likes will be the winner.
* How to vote: Click the 'like' on YouTube by noon on 25th, Oct. (KST)
* Host: IBS Center for Quantum Nanoscience (QNS) at Ewha Womans University.
1. Schrödinger's cat painted by fire
[Artist's statement]This is Novis lefeu who paints with fire. While preparing for the 'Spin Art' - 'Quantum Mechanics' contest, I paid attention to 'overlapping'-'observer'. Above all, I drew 'Schrödinger's Cat' with fire to create 'motion graphics' made. And The relationship between 'life and death' and 'quantum mechanics- art' along with other video works I thought about it. I want you to feel the art that I feel. Thank you
2. CALL 11
[Artist's statement]This work is a digital stop motion animation; one episode that can be imagined assuming an infinite universe, a many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics. The universe is dividing into infinite quantum mechanical possibilities every moment, resulting in multiple Earths. This tells us that we can discover other beings beyond the invisible world. The other beings can be us, and it is able to overlap in each world like the characters in the episode. Then, can we say that these other people are the same as us? If there is a difference from them, from what perspective can you say so? I hope this short story will be an opportunity for you to ask questions about quantum mechanical possibilities and the relationship between us and other beings.
3. Two and Only
[Artist's statement]Two and only, one but two. You and I may be two different ones, or the same one.
Looking at the twins Dana and Danyoung, I thought they were the same but also different. When I see Dana I could see Danyoung, and vice versa. In the spin, two completely different things coexist and make a superposition. Each half is the other, but both halves have their own personal traits. Therefore, they look like one, but at the same time they can be completely different two. Also, due to entanglement, which states that you can know one if you know the other, they can feel each other no matter how far apart they are. The twins seemed to know each other even if they were in two separate worlds. In the video, I used swings and inserted animation lines and texts that moved in opposition to imply the movement of the pendulum. By combining the two layers of video, I tried to highlight the traits of the twins. I filmed each scene with half of the actions at a time so that I could contain the properties of spin. For background music, I used the same notes in two different octaves to emphasize that the twins are similar but different.
