The Quantum Parallelograph is an exploratory project examining the scientific and philosophical ideas surrounding the theory of quantum physics and multiple universes.
The project is rooted in the pioneering work of Professor David Deutsch of Oxford University, and the earlier work of Professor Hugh Everett, who argue for infinite copies of ourselves existing within multiple universes. The Quantum Parallelograph seeks to reveal to the personal user how such ideas of alternative realities might be envisaged.
Weather forecasting is fundamental to us all, in business and leisure. It's a national obsession! But wouldn't it be good if the way we see the forecasts looked, well, a bit better? Weather Systems explores the potential to combine cloud based weather data with physical connected devices, to create simple, glanceable and fun alerts that are engaging.
Desire Management is a film by Noam Toran comprising five sequences in which objects are used as vehicles for dissident behaviour. In the film, the domestic space is defined as the last private frontier, a place where bespoke appliances provide unorthodox experiences for alienated people: An airline hostess with a unique relationship to turbulence, the owner of a mysterious box which men ritually visit to look inside, an elderly man who enjoys being vacuumed, a couple who engage in baseball driven fantasies, a man who is forced by his partner to cry into a strange device.
Part of the NY MoMA and Frac Ile-de-France collections.
Object for Lonely Men is a film by Noam Toran which tells the story of a man so obsessed with Godard’s "Breathless" that he builds a tray full of objects which reflects the physical language of the film. The objects include a mannequin head which resembles Jean Seberg (the female lead), a gun, hat, telephone, Herald Tribune newspaper, sunglasses, ashtray, steering wheel, rear view mirror and a pack of Gitanes non-filtered cigarettes. The tray serves as an outlet for the man’s desires, allowing him to directly channel the influence of cinema on his fantasies into physical action.
