In recent decades, an exciting new art movement has emerged in which artists utilise and illuminate the latest advances in science. Such provocative creations as a live rabbit implanted with the fluorescent gene of a jellyfish and a gigantic glass and chrome sculpture of the Big Bang, can be seen in traditional art museums and magazines, while others are being made by leading designers at Pixar, Google’s Creative Lab and the MIT Media Lab.
Join Arthur I. Miller, author of Colliding Worlds, and Akram Khan, Professor of Experimental Particle Physics at CERN, as they discuss this new frontier and demonstrate that these two fields are not divided, but interconnected. Explore how discoveries in biotechnology, cosmology, quantum physics and beyond are animating the work of designers like Neri Oxman, musicians like David Toop and the artists-in-residence at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider.
From NanoArt to Big Data, Miller and Khan will reveal the extraordinary possibilities when art and science collide.
