The Luminal Boom

A multimedia performance exploring ideas of sharing energy beyond one’s skin or kinesphere. By spreading one’s presence, others get affected in some manner. The concept that two electrons close together can vibrate in unison, according to the quantum theory. If one electron jiggles, the other electron ‘senses’ this vibration instantly, faster than the speed of light. Einstein himself referred to it as “spooky action at a distance,” though it is actually known as quantum entanglement.
