How do you visually explain the superposition principle without going the route of an old school filmstrip? For our video for Young The Giant’s “Superposition”—a song partly inspired by quantum physics—we went with optical illusions and tricks of the eye: band members multiply and converge back into one, rocks spin on their own, day and night are blurred. And because you can’t really demonstrate superposition without waves, we set it all on the coast, giving the Pacific Ocean a costarring role.
