Run by the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Engineered Quantum Systems (EQUS), the 2023 Quantum Art Competition invited artists to explore quantum science through their medium of choice, drawing inspiration from the competition theme, ‘duality’:

At the very heart of quantum mechanics lies a profound and mysterious principle, one that challenges the boundaries of our perception. It’s the idea that every entity, no matter how large or small, has a dual nature – existing simultaneously as both a particle and a wave.

Although it may seem to be a contradiction, it is verifiably true in experiments. It’s a paradox that forms the bedrock of the inner workings of our Universe. And this wave-particle duality is just the tip of the quantum iceberg. 

Within the quantum realm, countless other instances of simultaneous existence occur. Quantum entities, from tiny electrons to more complex systems, somehow exist dually in multiple states at the same time, creating a tapestry of possibilities that seem to defy classical logic.
