To many researchers, the universe behaves like a gigantic quantum computer that is busy processing all the information it contains.
20Hz observes a geo-magnetic storm occurring in the Earth’s upper atmosphere. Working with data collected from the CARISMA radio array and interpreted as audio, we hear tweeting and rumbling caused by incoming solar wind, captured at the frequency of 20 Hertz. Generated directly by the sound, tangible and sculptural forms emerge which are at once both waves and particles. Through this act of observation a quantum world is born which is ordinarily beyond the limits of our perception.
