Quantum Arts Jam
Quantum Arts Jam brings together the most exciting quantum physicists and artists in a Jam session during Aboagora symposium in Turku, Finland
Crowdfunding for Science!
Quantum Arts Jam will merge art and physics in three different sessions. Together with the artists we will turn an equation into a painting and the Universe into a real dance.
“We are physicists, constantly asking questions. From time to time we do find answers in experiments, formulas, even theories. However, we imagine things we cannot always picture.
Mathematics is the language of physics, with which we tell stories that pictures hardly could. As universal as it is, our language is not spoken by everyone. That is why we need interpreters. That is why we asked for help from art. ”
Quantum physicists will work together with the artists in improvised jam sessions, with an intention of creating atmosphere that speaks the dialogical language of quantum physics and art with both of its form and content.

Session 1: QUANTUM COMPLEXITY
Dr. John Good & Dr. Libby Haney
A dialogue between a crazy Irish quantum physicist and a fascinating London-based artist who was once a quantum physicist herself.
Session 2: DIAGRAMS OF LOVE
Prof. Sabrina Maniscalco, artist Sibel Kantola & musician Minna Twice
This is what happens when a physics professor meets her best friends artists over a coffee to chat about the life and works of one of the most well-known physicists of all times: Richard Feynman.
Session 3: BIG BANG TANGO
Prof. Esko Valtaoja & jazz pianist Fabrizio Mocata
The dance of the Universe is definitively a tango! Esko Valtaoja and Fabrizio Mocata will tell the story of the Universe as you’ve never heard before.
