In collaboration with Migrating Arts Academies (MigAA), Allenheads Contemporary Arts (ACA) is bringing together a group of international artists working in all media, as well as writers, curators and scientists who want to consider the invisible – the 95% of stuff out there in the aether. This stuff, which is made up of 27% Dark Matter and 68% Dark Energy remains mysterious, even to physicists.
Can imagination and creativity help us make sense of the inexplicable, or create the inexplicable? Is it faith that makes us believe in the intangible and if so, how can that sit comfortably with scientific thinking? Participating artists will be exploring such questions alongside guest speakers Dr Peter J Edwards, Department of Physics, Durham University and Professor Nicholas Owens, Oceanographer and former director of the (BAS) British Antarctic Survey.
