MELBOURNE KNOWLEDGE WEEK
You are invited to a conversation at RMIT Gallery on Wednesday 29 October from 6-7 pm that will take you into the depths of the Big Bang and back again.
How is new knowledge impacting the creative imaginations of today? Can you hear the distant past? Can the Big Bang be seen and heard today? What place does it hold in scientific and artistic discourse?
Lawrence Harvey, Associate Professor and Director SIAL Sound Studios, RMIT University ventures into the unknown with theoretical astrophysicist Dr Katie Mack and German artist Abel Korinsky to discuss new findings and theories related to the Big Bang.
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).
A new work by Korinsky is included in the upcoming Experimenta Recharge 6th International Biennial of Media Art – RMIT Gallery, Melbourne, 28 November 2014 – 21 February 2015.
