In this short animation, a modified aerial screw device sits atop an
ornate brass table, spinning vanes to cause an upwards draught. Suspended from the ceiling above is a Quantum Computer, adapted to renaissance materials of brass, wood and glass. Between the two, a white feather floats and dips, never quite touching the computer nor falling to the ground.

This piece is about the symbolic hope that technological advancement offers humankind – whether that be flight, incomprehensible computing power, or something altogether more poetic.
