Join a special screening of Particle Fever, programmed as part of our upcoming exhibition Spectra: The Art and Consequence of Collaboration. Presented in partnership with Golden Age Cinema & Bar, this documentary film follows the physicists at CERN, Switzerland as they prepare for the first round of experiments at the Large Hadron Collider.
The film will be introduced by Dr Martin Bell, an astrophysicist and lecturer at UTS. His research portfolio is a combination of big-data, high performance computing, image processing, mathematics and statistics which are currently applied to leading-edge applications in astronomical research. In particular he tries to understand the time-domain properties of the universe using Australia’s latest fleet of radio telescopes.
Spectra: The Art and Consequence of Collaboration presents eight Australian artists whose practices are characterised by a deep and innovative engagement with science. The exhibition explores the increasing convergence of art and science, and considers how each area can inform the other. The potency of crossdisciplinary collaboration lies in its ability to spark new ideas, provide critical perspectives on some of the great questions of our time, and develop new forms of expression that speak to the sophisticated technological era in which we live.
