My current institution, the Yale Quantum Institute, a leading research center on quantum computing, has had an Artist in Residence program for the last year, initiated by our administrator Dr. Florian Carle. For the last year Martha Lewis has been part of the institute, setting up multiple exhibits and working with the researchers at the instute through numerous art workshops.

For the end of her residence Martha prepared an amazing interactive installation, on temporary exhibit in the main hall of the institute, where each visitor gets to experience (and interpret for themselves) many of the counter-intuitive properties of quantum mechanics.

This poster describes some of the theory behind the ceiling diagram in the art installation, having to do with the impossibility of using a non-contextual hidden variable theory do describe quantum mechanics.
