Quantum Tunneling

Quantum mechanics is one of the least understood phenomena in science for it centers around shifting laws of action and reaction. Matter and waves share characteristics, and the universe as we know is understood as an evolution of atoms after the big bang. The quantum universe drives a paradigm shift in technology and particularly in computer technology. Indeed, the process of quantum tunneling is already replacing the laws of microelectronics currently essential to the operation of Intel processors in PCs. A "tunnel" connects two identical spaces in which images of the audience are projected and distorted. The visitor swipes a finger over a specified surface, leaving a genetic trace. While doing so, the visitor’s image is captured and presented in conglomeration with the face of another visitor. The recognizable faces are juxtaposed and become distorted. When another visitor passes through the tunnel, the facial images are again disturbed and altered, fractured into particles and waves.
