Quantum Questions for Dummies


New Structures

Animated art works by Aisling O'Beirn.

Aisling O'Beirn (Associate Lecture in Sculpture, University of Ulster) completed a very successful exhibition "Quantum Questions for Dummies". This is a body of work informed by popular interest in some of the more abstract and speculative ideas regarding the structure of the universe being explored in contemporary physics and astronomy. The work has been facilitated through dialogue with astronomers at Armagh Observatory.

The work takes the form of a series of folded sculptural forms which reference how space might be bent and distorted. These are accompanied by various animations dotted throughout the installation, which speculate about various imagined structures and events in the universe.

The work was shown at the Dada Post Gallery in Berlin from which the following images are taken.
