Quantum perceptions

Xcèntric Archive

On the occasion of “Quantum”, we have selected 8 pieces of the Xcèntric Archive that encourage us to reflect on our equivocal observation of the world. Precisely, the French philosopher Gilles Deleuze had analysed different topological temporalities (including quantum) through the narrative transformation and the use of space in different filmmakers. With a certain relationship to said paradoxes, here we present approaches, both abstract and concrete, to perceptual, temporal, mathematical, spatial or generative questions with some pieces of experimental cinema.
