With Doppelgänger, Quantum and Justin Aversano unveil a collection of 1000 unseen outtakes from the healing journey of Twin Flames restructured through code. This collection is a set of 1000 unique animations created in collaboration with Kim Asendorf, known for his Pixel Sorting script. Processed through Asendorf's code, unique variations of the original twins portraits by Justin Aversano become their own glitched alter ego before our eyes.

In 2021 Kim Asendorf released pixel animation works that played with pixels in real-time. He called the code 'grid' and created a series of abstract artworks with it. For Doppelgänger the code has been optimized to work with Photography, while maintaining its hypnotic visual behavior.

Each Doppelgänger photograph is initialized along with a subdivision algorithm that builds up a set of reference rectangles. The core set of 16 animations includes 4 noise-based animations, 4 shifting animations, 4 modulo-based animations, and 4 reset animations, all of which run in parallel. Each animation selects a rectangle from the initial setup and edits the pixels in this area. The selection process runs independently, and animations overlap to produce a new animation style.

Doppelgänger stems from three of Quantum’s core principles: collaboration, community, and curation. We believe in accessibility and unity through art, and we are pleased to offer those artworks at the confluence of code and analog to our Quantum Key holders. Those artworks are by nature a celebration of the two pillars of Quantum to this day: Photography and Digital Art.
