    Give a room full of monkeys some typewriters and an infinite amount of time and you’ll eventually get the complete works of Shakespeare.

Called Signal-to-noise, […]

    Unit cell is a project funded by the Royal Society of Chemistry, first researched and developed at ASMbly 2013.  The central idea involved using sound waves to illustrate diffraction through a lattice, in effect simulating X-ray crystallography.  The lattice was to be constructed from beach balls, which would reflect the sound if sufficiently solid.  Initial attempts […]

What is the ‘superposition’?

'Superposition' is a technical term in quantum mechanics, which describes an object which can exist in more than one state simultaneously.

thesuperposition.org is a collaborative community of artists, scientists and makers, based in Leeds.

We meet to discuss the overlap of our three disciplines and to be inspired to create artistic work which can be considered 'science', 'art' and 'making', simultaneously.
