-The sound and video installation “Entangled ​Pixel” is based on two video installations ​in different ​places and countries ​which are entangled ​over the internet. One part of the work will be in the College for Creative Studies, Detroit in the US and the other part will be in the University of Windsor, Canada only separated by the Detroit River that forms the natural frontier between both counties.\\+The sound and video installation “Entangled ​Pixels” is based on two separate artworks exhibited ​in two different ​spaces ​which are entangled ​via the internet.\\
-The installation refers to entangled particles in quantum physics. These remain connected so that actions performed ​on one affect the other, even if they are separated. ​That phenomenon once Albert Einstein ​called ​"​spooky action at a distance."​\\ +The installation refers to [[https://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Quantum_entanglement|entangled particles]] known in quantum physics. These usually ​remain connected ​to each other, ​so that actions performed ​against ​one particle will affect the other one as well, even though ​they may be separated. Albert Einstein ​once referred to this phenomenon as "​spooky action at a distance."​ 
-The installation "​Entangled ​Pixel" demonstrates that kind of spooky action with reference to the internet ​content ​we create every day a millions times when action and reaction of information,​ memes and fake news in the net are so entangled ​that no one can say what is true and what is lie - they can't be separated anymore, ​the are entangled.\\+The installation "​Entangled ​Pixels" ​thus demonstrates that kind of "spooky action" ​with reference to everyday Internet ​content. When action and reaction of information,​ memes and fake news as well as real-news-yet-said-to-be-fake-news get so intermingled ​that it becomes impossible to tell what may be true and what is definitely a lie - those Internet-based pieces of mis-/​information ​can't be separated anymore, ​they are forever ​entangled.\\

-At each monitor ​a live camera ​is attached. ​That camera films and plays in a feedback loop the magnified pixel structure ​of the monitor ​surfaveThose pixels appear roughened and frayed ​due to their exposed macro structure and they are also pulsing irregularly in all variety ​of colorsThe same footage ​of these pixels is streamed ​over the net, too and at the same time in the other location ​the installation ​receives ​the stream ​and mix it with together with the local footage. ​Shows that on the screen, films thatstreams it ... and so on.\\ +The artwork reflects upon this zeitgeist phenomena by exploring also the technological impact of these entanglements:​ Both monitors of the twofold installation have a live camera attached ​to themThe camera films the monitor'​s surface ​and in a feedback loop - projects ​the magnified pixel structure ​on the very same monitor. ​As the pixels' macro structures are exposed, they appear roughened and frayed. Moreover, ​they are pulsing irregularly in all varieties ​of colorEntanglement happens since the same footage ​will also be streamed ​via the Internet to the other part of the artwork. The receiving ​installation ​then mixes the stream with it's own local footage ​- with the help of a [[http://​paperpcb.dernulleffekt.de/​doku.php?​id=vga_synthesizer:​vga_main|VGA mixer]] designed by the artist - which will be projected ​on it's own screen, get filmed by its own camera which projects ​the mixture on the local screen, films that one and streams it to the other location - where it is received, looped ​and so on and so forth.\\ 
-Together that setup forms a kind of doubled feedback were both part forms the art work.\\ +  
-And at the same time each video signal will be sonificated,​ tooSo one can listen to the video signals, too and can experience ​acoustically the noise of an entangled ​feedback.+Moreover, ​each video signal will also be audibleDue to its sonification it becomes possible to listen to both videos' ​signals and to acoustically ​experience ​the noise of the "​Entangled Pixels"​.\\ 
 +Thus the setup forms a kind of doubled ​feedback ​where one part of the artwork is depended on and entangled with the other and creates a twofold installation.\\

----- +For the exhibition ​[[http://www.westdenhaag.com/exhibitions/19_02_McLuhan_V|„Feedback #4 - Marshall McLuhan and the Arts“]], 2019 one part of the artwork was be screened at the College for Creative Studies, Detroit (US) while the other part was be exhibited at the University of Windsor (Canada). Both cities are separated only by the Detroit River, which also forms a natural frontier between the two countries.\\
