CERN Council Chamber, 27 June 4.30-5.30 pm.
From red shift data to luminosity and the speed of light, Julius von Bismarck, the first winner of the Prix Ars Electronica Collide @CERN, returns to CERN to give us personal insight on the ideas which he started during his two month residency at CERN this year.
Julius will disclose his personal reactions to his experiences at CERN, sharing with us how particle physics and the laboratory has started having an impact on his artistic practice. As he said when won the prize at the first Collide @CERN public lecture, ‘For me, the Collide @CERN residency is a dream come true.’ So has reality matched up with his dreams? And why in the first two weeks did he say ‘For me already the residency is a success.’
What is his experience of the creative collisions between arts and science?
Find out how and why by coming to Julius’s informal interim lecture, in which one of the most exciting young artists of his generation, shares with us the thinking and development processes he undertakes for making a work of art which combines arts, science and technology. Julius will also share with us the work he is now developing to be shown at Ars Electronica Festival this year as a result of the Collide @CERN residency.
There will be opportunities for the audience to ask questions and the artist stresses that this will be a personal and informal presentation of ideas in progress.
Please note – Julius von Bismarck will be presenting and bringing back to CERN his finished work as a result of the Collide @CERN residency on September 25th at The Globe of Science and Innovation. The work will have been shown at the Ars Electronica Festival 2012 thanks to the development production residency with Ars Electronica, cultural partners of Collide @CERN, which takes place this August.
