Superposition: physicists and artists in conversation

Finished but not forgotten!

Posted by on Comments (0)

Covariance is now de-installed and residing, boxed, in my conservatory, a far cry from its splendour in the atmospheric ice wells underneath the London Canal Museum. The project has been an extraordinary experience, in every way, especially the feedback from visitors, which was overwhelmingly positive.

The collaboration with Ben and the Institute of Physics was wonderful. Their generosity and openness allowed me to absorb, ponder and enquire; be perplexed, fascinated and amazed. My journey started with nervousness and uncertainty; could my non-scientific brain get to grips, even a little bit, with particle physics? The answer was a resounding yes and I now have the desire and confidence to continue my exploration into this surprising, magical world and hope that through the legacy of Covariance and future projects I can encourage more people to do the same.

I hope other artists and physicists are fortunate enough to be part of the Superposition experience; I eagerly look forward to the future collaborations that will emerge.

Covariance update

A little update on Covariance. We held the private view on Wednesday 4th September and we estimated over 180 people attended. There was lots extra going on with canal boat trips running, speeches and ice cream. 

My job for the night was manning the front desk, but later it was so busy I was put down the well to help visitors up and down the ladders. In between pointing out the low ceiling I managed to speak to a few people and the reaction was very positive, with "beautiful" being a common word. See more photos from the event.

Alongside the brochure that accompanies the installation we also have a video which interviews Lyndall and Ben and about their experience of the Superposition project.
