For this edition of Göteborg Art Sounds, Montreal based artists France Jobin and Markus Heckmann will present the audiovisual work Entanglement.

Entanglement is an artistic project at the crossroads of scientific research inspired by the concept and properties of entanglement in quantum physics and quantum fields theory. The sources of inspiration of France Jobin and Markus Heckmann are based on the two current dominant theories explaining quantum entanglement: the Copenhagen interpretation and the multiverse. In addition to these two theories, there is the fluidity of time and the principle of quantum entanglement. The Entanglement AV performance is inspired by the same theories; an ambitious immersive experience that has also been translated into Entanglement xr and it is part of Mutek’s Immersive collection.

About France Jobin

France Jobin is a sound artist, composer and curator residing in Montreal, Canada. Her audio art can be qualified as “sound-sculpture”, revealing a minimalist approach to complex sound environments where analog and digital intersect. Her installations express a parallel path, incorporating both musical and visual elements inspired by the architecture of physical spaces. Her works can be experienced in a variety of unconventional spaces and new technology festivals across the world. Since 2009, her focus has been related to Quantum mechanics. Many of her projects are inspired by theories related to topics such as vacuum decay, string theory and more recently, what she feels to be the most perplexing phenomenon in the world of the quantum, entanglement resulting in a first presentation, Entanglement A/V, with visual artist Markus Heckmann, which delves into the realms of quantum physics premiered at Mutek Mtl 2021.

About Markus Heckmann

Born in Germany in 1977, Markus Heckmann studied Media-technology at the University of Ilmenau and the Bauhaus University in Weimar before obtaining in 2006 the position of Technical Director at Derivative, the maker of TouchDesigner, in Toronto. Heckmann’s personal works have always tended to combine the aesthetic aspects of generative computer graphics with the almost physical aspects of light. Apart from producing visuals and installations for artists like Carsten Nicolai or applications to control the KineticLights of WHITEvoid, he occasionally takes care of visual stimuli at techno events under the nickname Wüstenarchitekten.
