Quantum Teacups

Jean-François Podevin  2020: "Quantum Teacups"




Making sense of quantum mechanics is like plunging into a carrollian world of Cheshire cats and Alice's mad tea parties, a world that gets "curiouser and curiouser".

I  created this metaphorical representation of a two in one cup of tea absurdly pouring itself in and out simultaneously to illustrate quantum entanglement which Albert Einstein also called:  "the spooky action at a distance."


This image is part of a series I painted  for Catherine Zandonella of Princeton University Annual Research magazine for a cover story on quantum computers.


This painting was also just chosen to be one of two 12ft mural panel  decorating  the upcoming Princeton University "Gravity Initiative" center.
