QUANTUM ENIGMA

Robert B. LISEK QUANTUM ENIGMA is an installation, which utilizes radioactive materials such as Thorium for generating random numbers sequence that has a many applications as a great cryptographic key and source of random light and sound impulses. The existing computing machines don’t generate random sequences; the so called pseudo-generators of random numbers are periodic. […]
