But despite all his talents, Shimon can’t work alone. Richard Savery was tapped to join him. Savery is a Ph.D. student at the Center for Music Technology in the College of Design at Georgia Tech.
He wrote the algorithms to give Shimon the knowledge to compose and produce the score for Space Between Fragility Curves. The film is part of a large-scale installation comprised of projected video images on two lar...
RE-ANIMATED at the 2019 Venice Biennale. As part of the Future Generation Art Prize exhibition, my work will be exhibited at the Palazzo Ca’ Tron, a Venetian Renaissance palace.

First, ten artistic projects show how the impact of quantum physics goes beyond the realm of science. Then, nine windows introduce laboratory research work and present visitors with the intellectual achievement represented by the theori...
