HEAD of QC-RESEARCH
o. Univ.-Prof Dr. h. c. PETER WEIBEL (Institute for MEDIA THEORY at the University of Applied Arts, Vienna), who is also head of the ZKM (Centre for Art and Media Karlsruhe)
In his capacity as media theorist and founder of the new media department at the University of Applied Arts, Peter Weibel is also the principal investigator of this research program. Prof. Peter Weibel is conducting the collaborational studies and supervises the QUANTUM-CINEMA- project developed by
Mag. art. cand. phil. Renate Quehenberger
an artist, designer, philosopher, who found intuitively the 3D representation of the Penrose Kites & Darts tiling and developed the goals and brought together the inter-disciplinary research group for the Quantum Cinema project.
o. Univ.Prof. Dr. Elisabeth von Samsonow (Institute for ANTHROPOLOGY OF ARTS, Academy of Fine Arts, Vienna)
is specialized in the work of Giordano Bruno and Johannes Kepler. Her expertise will provide research options from early cosmological concepts in myths and religions with different kinds of geometry and space concepts in science history in regard to their relevance in modern science.
Em. o. Univ.-Prof. Dipl.-Ing. Dr. techn. Helmut Rauch (Experimental Physics, Atomic Institute, TU-Vienna and the Institute Laue-Langevin, Grenoble)
a leading capacity in the field of experimental quantum physics, famous for his neutron interferometry experiment which, for the first time, proved the quantum feature of massive neutrons, will provide his expertise and facilitate extraordinary access to the latest research results from ongoing experiments in the Atomic Institute. His expertise will help to develop the appropriate higher-dimensional digital geometry based on common depiction models.
Prof. Dr. phil. Mag. rer. nat. Prof. Hellmuth Stachel (Institute for Mathematics and Discrete Geometry, TU-Vienna)
Is, due to his work on geometry and computation – preliminaries for science visualization – the perfect partner in computational programming, and will elaborate the “discrete dynamic geometry” concept to develop the structures of the higher-dimensional space configuration for its application on 3D-animation. He will teach the required theories in his specific fields of geometry and mathematics and give instructions for the computer programming.
Ao. Univ. Prof. Dipl.-Ing. Dr. techn. Martin Bluemlinger (Institute for Analysis and Scientific Computing, TU -Vienna)
mathematician, will support the research project with instructions in Analysis. His expertise in Lie Groups will be relevant for the questions on topology.
