New Designers 2011: Associates Prizes Part 2

Patrick Stephenson-Keating, Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art - Designersblock Associate Prize

Patrick Stevenson-Keating, a product designer from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, has won the New Designers Designersblock Associate Prize for his innovative ‘Quantum Parallelograph’ which is an exploratory public engagement project that explores the scientific and philosophical ideas of Professor David Deutsch of Oxford University, surrounding the theory of quantum physics and multiple universes. Patrick produced a device that simulates a glimpse into ‘parallel lives’ to observe our alternate realities.

Also rooted in the earlier work of Professor Hugh Everett, Patrick’s ‘Quantum Parallelograph’ helps argue for Everett’s theory of infinite copies of ourselves existing within multiple universes and seeks to reveal to the user how such ideas of alternative realities may be envisaged.

‘A genuine creative idea to present a complex physics theory in a very poetic way’ – Bud Moore, Designerblock.
