Quantum Lotus is a collaboration by artists Cindy Thompson of Transformit and James LaPlante of Sputnik Animation. The installation features a pair of large fabric lotus sculptures that surround each participant and react to their presence and motion.  The lotus forms are projection mapped with interactive generative art inspired by quantum mechanics.

Cindy Thompson and James LaPlante will talk about the installation at 5PM, May 9, 2024:
104 Olin Arts Center, Bates College, 75 Russell St, Lewiston, ME 04240 [Map link]

We hope you can come join us for the event.

James LaPlante take his inspiration for this piece from his experience working with nuclear physicists Richard Milner (MIT) and Rolf Ent (Jefferson Labs). In 2020 James, Richard and Rolf developed a new visualization of the Proton as documented in this video.

This project was made possible by a generous gift from the Sherman Fairchild Foundation and our hosts at the Bates Immersive Media Studio. We are grateful for their support.
