I posted on 13th June about the Manchester event at The Gorilla on Saturday 20th July, 7-10pm where I have been invited to speak.
The organisers of The Universe Explained state:
Both artists and scientists are explorers. There has never been more public interest or more scientific progress in understanding the fundamental workings of the universe but at the same time the concepts are extremely complex and occasionally bewildering to the lay person. They are also intrinsically fascinating and inspirational to artists. This is an attempt to translate the complexity and express the wonder through a variety of art forms. This is public engagement with a difference.
The other speakers will be:
Professor John Ellis, leading theoretical physicist from the LHA in CERN
Jonathon Keats, artist and experimental philosopher (beaming in from San Francisco!)
Chella Quint, performer and comedian
Professor Maurice Riordan, poet and co-editor (with Jocelyn Bell Burnell) of Dark Matter: Poems of Space
John Robb and post-punk legends The Membranes
Suzie Shrubb, composer and pulsar enthusiast, with 16 musicians from the Edges Ensemble
Dr Radmila Topalovic from the Royal Observatory Greenwich
Michael Trainor, artist
