Libby Heaney is an artist and research tutor at the Royal College of Art with a PhD in quantum information science. Libby combines this background in quantum computing with her critical fine art training to consider the future impacts of new technologies such as machine learning and quantum computing with a focus on class, gender, pop culture, language and (un)storytelling. She takes a range of approaches when making work which often draw from quantum science—such as blurring, combining, remixing, and weaving in order to 'diffract' standard conceptions of ’truth’ into strange new forms to question orthodoxies and to explore alternatives. Libby has exhibited in the UK and internationally including at the V&A and Tate Modern. She has spoken about her work widely and has published over 20 papers in international art and physics journals. She has received commissions and funding from the Goethe Institute, Sky Arts, British Council, Arts Council England among others.
