Decoherence is a duet that developed from an interest in Quantum Entanglement, a scientific theory about interconnectivity on an atomic level. According to this theory, entangled particles simultaneously influence each other regardless of proximity. This entangling and decohering (separating) is happening constantly all over the universe. Decoherence started as a replication of this theory on a macro level. It grew into an attempt at heightened togetherness and proof that we all exist in reference to each other. It is a love letter to the physical laws that unite us all and the mystery of human connection.
