Notes from the 1st Deep Listening Conference

On July 12-14th, in the impressive EMPAC center on the campus of Renssalaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY, the 1st International Conference on Deep Listening was held, and I (Adam) had the unexpected pleasure to present my ongoing Physics Gestures work at it.

Dance-Physics Collaboration at Yale

We found a great example of another art-science collaboration being conducted at Yale University that resonates strongly with our goals.  Emily Coates (Dance) and Sarah Demers (Physics) have performed an exploration of the recent discovery of the Higgs Boson, the last particle of the standard model.  Collaboratively they have examined the gestures physicists use to describe the Higgs, developed aesthetic compositions from these, and reflected on how these compositions feeds back into the imaginations of scientists as they look to the next big problem in particle physics (which is likely to be the hypothetical dark matter particle).  Emily and Sarah have also taught a class, “The Physics of Dance“, and a book based on the course is in preparation

You can learn more about their project, Discovering the Higgs through Physics, Dance and Photography, at the Reintegrate website and the youtube video below.

Adam Burgasser selected to present Gestural Physics at the First International Conference on Deep Listening

Adam Burgasser will be presenting his work investigating a gestural/physical language for Physics at the 1st annual International Conference in Deep Listening, to be held at the Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC) in Troy, NY, July 12-14.  Adam will discuss the foundations for the gestural terms and operations he is developing, and how they may be used to educate and convey the mathematical elegance of Physics through movement.

A Physical Langauge for Physics at Audacious Speculations April 12th

Adam Burgasser will be presenting his work investigating a physical language for Physics at the Audacious Speculations in Art, Science, Activism and Entrepreneuralism next Friday, April 12th from 6-9pm at CalIT2 at UCSD.  There will be a live webcast at this page. Come early to Sixth College’s ARTifact Gallery to see associated artwork for the show (like the image below – what do you think this means?)
