Collide@CERN with Sight: In/Visible Worlds

Cycle: "Art and Science: CERN at the OCC"

30 April 2014
19:00
Upper Stage
This conversation would begin with exploring why are hidden worlds important in theoretical particle physics and how is it an important concept.
Free admission
James Wells, theorist and hidden world's specialist at CERN, will put the case in debate with  the German artist Julius von Bismarck, the first winner of the Prix Ars Electronica Collide@CERN. They will then move on to debate the importance of the visible versus the invisible in our culture and whether artists or scientists are the best specialists of the hidden worlds, making the unknown and unknowable visible. It will be a fascinating debate in which discussions about the role of the imagination and creativity in arts and science will be explored and revealed.
