Breaking Quanta

Breaking Quanta is a thesis by Marijke Moolenaar on the use of “noise as a bridge between the absolute and the practical”. In other words, how noise allows quantized data to better represent that which it refers to in the physical realm. For this project, cover and layout of the book were designed to provide both aesthetic and informative support for the text.



  • Above: Work by author Danilo Kis is one of the main focusses of the Breaking Quanta Thesis. For the cover of Breaking Quanta, an iconic picture of the author is pixillated and separated into it’s RGB components. Warping these layers separately leaves the picture quantized yet recognizable – aesthetically appealing to the content of the thesis.
