Proton Dancing (Zagreb 2013)

In the 90’s physicists at the Institut für Experimentalphysik, Universität Innsbruck, conducted an experiment where information about the quantum state of one photon was teleported to another particle, one of an entangled pair.

The mechanics of how this works are difficult to grasp.

In 2013 a group of students at the Zagreb Academy of Fine Art attempted to understand the experiment by trying to enact it spatially through movement.  This film records that endeavor.
