For the ultimate in a nondenominational wedding ceremony, consider a quantum entanglement. The ceremony, developed by conceptual artist, Jonathon Keats, is borrowed from quantum physics, where when two or more subatomic particles become entangled, they behave as one.
Keats has designed an entangling apparatus, which, when situated in a sunny window and exposed to the full spectrum of solar radiation divides pairs of entangled photons and translates them to the bodies of a nearby couple.
A scenario might go like this, said Keats in an email correspondence with Discovery News about his project:
According to Keats, the couple won't know to what extent they've become entangled, because any attempt to measure a quantum system disturbs it.
"The quantum marriage will literally be broken up by skepticism about it," he said.
Basically they have to take it on faith.
Entanglements will be available from May 12 to June 18 2011 in the South Alcove of the AC Institute, 547 W. 27th St, 6th Floor, in New York City.
