            The Art|Sci Collective invited the POM conference’s audience and colleagues, to jump collectively with us from one space of possibility–where quantum mechanics asserts, we ‘don't know’ and ‘can't know’, to the next —in which experimental techniques such as time-resolved microscopy, ultrafast spectroscopy, single molecule spectroscopy, or even single particle imaging, enable us the precision of observing and measuring infinitesimal dynamics at very small length and time scales. What does quantum biology offer us as multiplicities and alternative realities when considering the attempt to subvert and confront absolute order, stability, and control in the socio-political sphere? We offer a randomly guided immersion in a sequence of live and pre-recorded video performances and video-poems, speculating on quantum effects in living systems, using DIY microscopy, data visualization, generative 3D modelling and animation, machine learning, and other media art techniques.
