Reality is the substance of a dense network of interactions between entities, between particles, between consciousnesses. In every direction of time and space, probabilistic quantum functions branch out, defining a superposition of possible states. Quantum Wave attempts to abstract the point of view, crushing all dimensions in a translated representation, which finds no limit in the visual and sound space: it’s lost in a perennial and indeterminate undulation, without reference points, in shapes and frequencies that transpose the granular plurality of reality. Work inspired by the book „Helgoland“ by Carlo Rovelli on quantum physics.


Lorenzo Papanti (Pisa, 1989) is an italian artist, engineer and architect. He completed his studies in 2014 at the DESTeC University of Pisa, developing compositional and digital skills. His works and installations constitute hypothetical dimensions, digital hybrid places. The investigation of the physical and mental space represent a constant of his artistic research, aimed at defining the reality through perceptual verification, crossing performative territories and visual operations. His works have been selected and shown in international exhibitions and awards, as Laguna Art Prize, Combat Prize, Ars Electronica Art galley, Les instants video, International Encounters Traverse, Stuttgarter Filmwinter, Media Art Biennale WRO, Intermediaciones, FIVAC, IVAHM, Under the Subway, Digital Art fest Sofia, Paratissima, Video Art Forum Dammam, CODEC, The WRONG Biennale, Niio AI Art prize, IBRIDA Festival, MADATAC, Videoart MIDEN, New Media Fest.
