This paper aim in waving reflections around the sovereignty of interaction in communicational processes focusing on Human-Computer Interaction subtleties related to informational processes in a quantum level to present and discuss the author series ‘Performing Quantum Entanglement: Subtle Apparatuses for Nonlocal Affectiveness’. The approach involves conceptualizing what the author defines as Complex Affective Systems (CAFFS), referring to multidimensional systems of interactions that lead to manifestations and incorporations of the self and the emergence of consciousness. The works selected to conduct the present conversation have been produced for the author’s solo show at the Art|Sci Gallery, CNSI/UCLA, in Los Angeles (2014), and recently for the inaugural solo show she designed for the Roy Ascott Studio Gallery in Shanghai (2015).

The author would like to thank the Fulbright Program that awarded her a Post-Doctoral grand in Arts (2013−2014) and to the Art|Sci Center and Lab, including the researchers from Professor James Gimzewski’s laboratories at the UCLA Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry and the CNSI – California NanoSystems Institute, and from Professor Victoria Vesna’s studio at UCLA Department of Design Media Arts, within which she was working during the grant period. A special thanks to the artist’s supervisor Professor James Gimzewski, and to Professor Victoria Vesna, for their openness, inspiration, and the opportunity given to conceive, produce and exhibit the experimental project here presented.
