E. Domnitch / D. Gelfand
"Mesoscopic Rippes in the Neural Sea"
The lecture gives insights into the work of the Evelina Domnitch and Dmitry Gelfand who strikingly fuse artistic practice and scientific experiment. The artist duo began their pursuit with a dismissal of fixative and recording media in favour of dynamically transforming liquids, gases, and force fields propagating through these fluid environs. They will talk about how this orientation toward the fluid lead to imploding sonoluminescent bubbles, acoustically levitated droplet lattices, and prismatic condensation trails of subatomic charges. Using examples from their own oeuvre, they demonstrate to what extent their work takes place at the slippery frontier where quantum behaviour arises on macroscopic scales.
