The Universe has spoken and we have understood. David Blair, astrophysicist and LIGO and OzGrav collaboration member.
Particle/Wave is an immersive multimedia exploration of gravitational waves at the point where poetry, video art, music and science intersect. First observed in 2015, gravitational waves are ripples in space-time, traveling away from exploding stars, merging black holes and other cosmological phenomena.
Physicist Stephen Hawking called them ‘a completely new way of looking at the universe.’ A mind-expanding collaboration of artists and internationally renowned scientists, Particle/Wave offers a unique lens into this incredible discovery.
Following a sell-out season at the Melbourne Festival 2018 and this years’ World Science Festival Brisbane, Particle/Wave is proud to be part of National Science Week 2019. It will travel to Melbourne, Wollongong and Adelaide.
