LABORATORIA Art&Science Space, 3 Obukha per.
ARTIST & SCIENTIST talk is a discussion format of Laboratoria, designed to create opportunities for artists and scientists to meet in common space - to provoke a dialogue which would allow participants and audience to expand the understanding of the most up-to-date scientific and artistic phenomena, and create the freedom for new ideas.
Participants of the project “Quantum Entanglement”: artist Memo Akten and quantum physicist Alexander Lvovsky will encounter at the exhibition and share their views on the quantum world from their perspectives. We will learn what inspires the artist in quantum theory, will hear incredible facts about scientist’s research, and will see what could unite them.
SCIENTIST - Alexander Lvovsky (Russia)
University of Calgary (Canada), Russian Quantum Center
QUANTUM PHYSICS FOR ENTANGLED
The scientist will tell us, what lead Professor Max Planck to desperation; What happens when you try to take a photograph of a quantum; How a football match would occur in the microworld; How to detect a hypersensitive bomb while avoiding the explosion; Who is stronger: Bruce Willis or the quantum computer; Why quantum theory contradicts common sense; How to deal with this contradiction without damaging your brain? And whether Schrödinger’s cat is dead or alive?
ARTIST - Memo Akten (UK - Turkey)
Talk by Memo will be held in English (quantity of simultaneous translation devices is limited)
Inspired by the processes that shape our lives, Memo uses the tools of science as a lens to the world. Through visual, sonic and behavioural metaphors he creates artefacts that reveal, extract, amplify and abstract the unseen harmonies, tensions and poetry found within these phenomena. His work plays at the boundaries between abstract and figurative, and spans multiple disciplines including images, videos, sound, light, digital sculptures, dance, large scale installations, performances, software and online works.
