UNCERTAINTY, BETWEEN PHYSICS AND ART

TiConZero marte

Uncertainty permeates all of science: the progress of physics and of our knowledge is therefore inevitably linked to our ability to understand and handle uncertainty, a theme als artists deal with. This is the heart of the last event for the exhibition "Uncertainty. Interpreting the present, predicting the future", which will go live from the exhibition halls on the social media channels of INFN and Palazzo delle Esposizioni: an event dedicated to uncertainty in quantum mechanics, experimental physics and cosmology, and also in art, to understand how contemporary art elaborates and interprets the themes and categories of science, including that of uncertainty.

The exhibition “Uncertainty”, co-curated by INFN, is hosted in the halls of Palazzo delle Esposizioni (Rome) until February 27, as part of the project of Azienda Speciale Palaexpo "Three Stations for Art-Science" promoted by Roma Culture, together with the exhibitions "The Science of Rome" and "Ti Zero".

7 FEBRUARY, 6.30 p.m., UNCERTAINTY IN PHYSICS: FROM QUANTUM MECHANICS TO THE GREAT MYSTERIES OF THE UNIVERSE

Live from the halls of Palazzo delle Esposizioni on INFN Facebook and YouTube channels

PHYSICS IN THE WAVE

Live on INFN YouTube channel 

The collaboration between INFN and Shibumi continues: after a video-series on energy, a new series of videos dedicated to cosmic rays, realized thanks to the contribution of Fabio Morsani and Riccardo Paoletti of the INFN Division of Pisa and the OCRA project, who designed the cosmic ray detector hosted on the boat. The videos will be accompanied by live online events with INFN researchers to whom students can ask their questions and curiosities.
