Event Description
This research roundtable brings together artists and physicists to talk about the ways their work is stimulated and inspired by the other discipline. Distinguished panelists include experimental physicist Paolo Giubellino, spokesperson for the ALICE project at CERN; Ariane Koek, coordinator of the Arts@CERN project; physicist and filmmaker Agnes Mocsy; designers from the MK12 studio, which did the graphics for the documentary film Particle Fever; and artist Marissa Benedict, who works with the Art, Science & Culture initiative at the University of Chicago. Open to the public, this roundtable is organized by KU Physics Professor Daniel Tapia Takaki, and the Arts Research Collaboration (ARC) initiative at the Spencer Museum of Art. Supported by the Research Investment Council, ARC is a partnership between the Spencer Museum of Art and the Biodiversity Institute, Information and Telecommunication Technology Center, and Department of Visual Art that aims to foster innovative interdisciplinary research at the intersection of the arts, sciences, technology, and society.
