      LITTLE REVOLUTIONS_08 Sex is one of the most important achievements of biological evolution - a vast majority of known organisms reproduces sexually as males and females. Sex is believed to have evolved as a response to the selective pressure of quickly changing parasites. Only sexual reproduction can create novel, unique genetic variants of individuals that can efficiently fight ubiquitous parasites. Szymon Drobniak - biologist-ornithologist, graphic designer, passionate about information art - currently researcher in the Institute of Environmental Sciences of the Jagiellonian University. Studies evolutionary biology, particularly evolution of reproductive systems in birds and theoretical genetics. In the science-free time he travels exploring the unknown - or works with the youngest trying to convince them that evolution is not as abstract as it seems.

He is interested in thin films and nanostructures - very small objects, about million times smaller than a grain of sand. In particular, he study their magnetic properties. In addition to the scientific work, Michal’s passion is popular science. The winner of the special prize in the competition “Science Popularizer 2013” organized by the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education, together with the Polish Press Agency. Everybody is a living source of radiation. It is because our body is made of different radioactive atoms. The radiation is been keeping people company forever, and it is so weak that we should not be afraid of it. It can sometimes even help you.

                LITTLE REVOLUTIONS_03 It’s not the gratification that motivates us the most. Otherwise we would not do the stuff which doesn’t reward us at all! Our brain directs us with the mirage of the pleasure – illusion that after the next muffin or episode of trendy TV series we will feel the bliss and relaxation. Quite often it turns out otherwise – we end up more annoyed and desperate for the real pleasure than before. Why it is like that? Check it out from the mini-lecture. Magda Jagielska is a psychologist focused on the phenomena of willpower and self-control. In her doctoral dissertation she seeks for the role of emotions in goal pursuit and resistance to impulses. She works at Research Center for Complex Systems at University of Warsaw and looks for the implementation of psychology in New Technologies. She is a national level finalist of Famelab competition from 2013.

                  LITTLE REVOLUTIONS_02 "We love murderers!" is a short movie on two "canonical" villains who are adored despite their malice: Hannibal Lecter and Macbeth. The field of art is the field of ambivalence and only complex characters prove interesting. In art the forbidden is the desired.

                    LITTLE REVOLUTIONS_01 Pink does not exist because there is no length of the electromagnetic wave corresponding to pink. Pink exists as a response of our brain to the absence of green. This is true of all colours as they are created in our heads when the brain interprets the signal received from the eyes. But only pink does not have its physical counterpart in visible light. We can see pink, but only with our “mind’s eye”! Monika Koperska works at the Jagiellonian University in Kraków, Poland. Her research interests are in preservation chemistry, which aims at conserving cultural artefacts from artworks to books. Monika’s PhD focuses on stopping the spontaneous destruction of silk, and she uses the Wawel banners from the 16th and 17th century as an example. In 2012, she won the first edition of the FameLab in Poland and took 2nd place at FameLab International.

                      A Day Is Longer Than A Year 2013 Theatre spotlights, dichroic filters, custom motors Installation view: Fremantle Arts Centre, Perth. Photography: Michaela Gleave Two theatre spotlights hang suspended from the ceiling, their circular beams of light slowly orbiting the peripheries of the room. Travelling in alternate directions and at differing speeds the twin orbs track their courses slowly, stretching and distorting as the focus shifts in and out of view. Morphed by the physical properties of the room and expanding and contracting with the lengthening and shortening of space, the beams circle one another as binary stars, eclipsing at varying points as the two rotations collide and diverge. Like spinning pulsars in the far reaches of the universe the spotlights measure time, their pace consistent and precise. Objects in their way cause shadows, leaving traces of their presence in the beam, with the movement of light constantly altering the ambient illumination through shades of indigo, purple, violet and magenta. Light is truncated and stretched, tripping over the angular lines of walls and windows, the reality of the image perceived entirely dependent on one’s position in space and time. Reminiscent of an empty ballroom, or stage spotlights ever scanning for a center of focus, A Day Is Longer Than A Year reflects on our shifting understanding of matter, time and space, oscillating between intimate experience and a constantly expanding knowledge of the universe. The red and blue beams of light echo the stretch and pull of reality, the electromagnetic spectrum as it reaches earth carrying with it signifiers of space-times far beyond tangible reach. Inspired by a research residency with the CSIRO’s Astronomy and Space Science Division, this installation draws on changes in our knowledge of the universe over time, from light as an historic driver of scientific research, to the undermining of our notions of reality by quantum physics and theories of relativity. Referencing in it’s title our basic markers of time, A Day Is Longer Than A Year explores the relational nature of reality and the impact that shifts in knowledge have on our understanding of ourselves. Part theatre stage waiting for an audience, part experiment in space, time and light, A Day Is Longer Than A Year unfolds slowly, consuming the viewer’s vision and questioning the validity of any single point of view With thanks to CSIRO’s Astronomy and Space Science Division, Dr Ric Spencer, Robert Hollow, Helen Sim, Erin Coats, Wayne Kellet and Chris O’Dwyer. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
