Can You Hear the Shape of the Drum

The title of the project refers to the title of the article by mathematician Mark Kac who asked the question whether the drums of different geometrical shapes can have exactly the same set of sound tones. The answer was positive, meaning that the eigenfrequency set does not uniquely characterise the shape of a resonator. By taking this mathematical question this project discuss the influence of development of quantum physics and art through the past 100 years and its influence in the creation of the idea of borderless existence.
