Below you will find a link to Paolo Giubellino’s talk ‘The Big Bang in the Laboratory’ followed by ‘Excavating the Universe: Physics Interacts with the Arts’ panel discussion with Paolo Giubellino, Marissa Benedict, Saralyn Reece Hardy, and Agnes Mocsy. Also included in this post are images from the days events.
As we get into the run up to our Round Table sessions with CERN I thought it would be interesting to post some of the photos from its archive. These photos show how long the project has been going while also revealing the visual allure that many artists feel for the aesthetics of physics. So please come and participate in our event at The Commons on Nov 21st.
Here is the official blurb –
Excavating the Universe: Physics Interacts with the Arts
2:30-4:00pm Friday, November 21 | The Commons
Sponsored by the Spencer Museum of Art and the Department of Physics & Astronomy
This roundtable brings together artists and physicists to talk about the ways their work is stimulated and inspired by the other discipline. Distinguished panelists will include experimental physicist Paolo Giubellino, spokesperson for the ALICE project at CERN; Ariane Koek, coordinator of the Arts@CERN project; physicist and filmmaker Agnes Mocsy; designers from the studio MK12, which did the graphics for Particle Fever; and artist Marissa Benedict, who works with the Art, Science & Culture initiative at the University of Chicago. This event is organized by physics Prof. Daniel Tapia Takaki and the Arts Research Collaboration (ARC) initiative at the Spencer Museum of Art. Supported by the Research Investment Council, ARC is a partnership between the SMA and the Biodiversity Institute, Information and Telecommunication Technology Center, and Department of Visual Art that aims to foster innovative interdisciplinary research at the intersection of the arts, sciences, technology, and society.
Today at ARC we had a fantastic virtual meeting with the people at arts@CERN and collide@CERN. This collaboration was the brainchild of Daniel Tapia Takaki who is a physicist at KU and CERN. The team at CERN were Panos Charitos, Adelina von Fürstenberg, and Rosalind McLachlan. Today it was decided that we will be having public and private roundtable discussions on November 19th at The Commons here in Lawrence. Rosalind will be discussing her project ‘CERN as an Archeological Site’ and Adelina will be presenting the past projects at CERN. We at ARC are very excited by the project and the possibilities of what future projects we might make together. Below you can find out more about everyone involved in our collaboration. We will be posting more on this project as it progresses.
