Schrödinger’s Cat (explained)

For the No Matter project, Victoria Scott and I designed 40 “imaginary objects” first in the virtual world of Second Life and then materialized into real life. One of our favorites is this paper sculpture of Schrödinger’s Cat.

Many have asked us what is “Schrödinger’s Cat” and I usually respond that it is a thought experiment illustrating principles of quantum physics. With a hot debate in science over the Copenhagen Interpretation or the Multiverse interpretation, the mind reels.

In this one-minute video, Henry Reich explains what this is with line drawings and voiceover. Great job!
