  • PhysicSpace: From Quantum to Human Scale

Walker, Kevin and Von Ompteda, Karin, 2014, Conference or Workshop, PhysicSpace: From Quantum to Human Scale at IEEE VIS, Paris, France, 9-14 November 2014.

Abstract or Description:

We describe a month-long project about communicating physics concepts and methods through spatial and experiential installations in a public exhibition. A collaboration between MA students in Information Experience Design at the Royal College of Art and physics PhD students at Imperial College London resulted in an exhibition which rendered quantum interactions of particles and fluids at human scale using wood, lasers, projections, lenticular printing and digital technologies, in an atmospheric underground space in May 2014. This work, we believe, signals a new category of art-science collaborations, in between didactic museum displays, practical visualisations, and science-inspired art projects, aimed at communicating scientific concepts spatially, experientially and with artistic methods and critical narratives.
