Ars Scientia: An artist and a physicist walked into a glassblowing studio …

February 17 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The UBC Ars Scientia collaboration brings together artists and scientists to identify fruitful areas for interdisciplinary work. I’ll describe how it plunged this theoretical physicist into a messy (and fun!) glassblowing studio, why it saw me capturing explosions at 100,000 frames per second at the hospital, and how some serendipitous physics observations have taken me into the lab. Come learn a bit about the physics of glass and other avalanching systems, as well as how to make the most of an art and science collaboration!
