How is new knowledge impacting the creative imaginations of today? This conversation will take you into the Big Bang depths and back again.
Lawrence Harvey speaks with German artist Abel Korinsky and American astrophysicist Dr Katie Mack about dark matter, black holes and how new research and finding may change our lives in the future.
Working with multichannel sound installations, artist Abel Korinsky questions what could happen if sounds from the past could be reconstructed and hearable again? What would the Big Bang sound like? If we knew, what would be the consequences for society, politics and history?
Lawrence Harvey, Associate Professor and Director SIAL Sound Studios, RMIT University ventures into the unknown with theoretical astrophysicist Dr Katie Mack and Abel Korinsky to discuss new findings and theories related to the Big Bang; can the Big Bang be seen and heard today? What place does it hold in scientific and artistic discourse?
A new work by Korinsky is included in the upcoming Experimenta Recharge 6th International Biennial of Media Art exhibition held at RMIT Gallery from 28 November 2014 to 21 February 2015.
The EU Centre at RMIT is co-funded through a Grant from the European Union and RMIT University.
Lawrence Harvey, Associate Professor and Director SIAL Sound Studios; Abel Korinsky from the Korinsky Art Collective (Germany) is currently in residence with Experimenta at RMIT Project Space, supported by EMARE (European Media Art Residency Exchange); Dr Katherine (Katie) Mack is a theoretical astrophysicist. Throughout her career as a researcher at Caltech, Princeton, Cambridge, and now Melbourne University, she has studied dark matter, black holes, cosmic strings, and the formation of the first galaxies in the Universe.
