    About the exhibition

    DUALITYΒ showcases the entries to the 2023 EQUS Quantum Art Competition.

    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, β€˜duality’:

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

    AlthoughΒ it may seemΒ to be a contradiction, it is verifiably true in experiments.Β  It’s a paradox that forms the bedrock of theΒ inner workings of our Universe.Β  And this wave–particleΒ dualityΒ is just the tip of the quantum iceberg.Β 

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

    The exhibition is openΒ to the public daily, 16–20 May 2024 (free entry).
