Inspired by the physics concept of quantum entanglement, which Albert Einsten called “spooky action at a distance,” this telepresence intermedia performance was presented simultaneously at two sites. The dancers at both sites were linked through the Active Space intermedia performance system. Presented by the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2), at the UCI Calit2 building opening, Entangled Photons linked the Calit2 courtyard on the ground floor with the eMedia Studio on the second floor.
