DARK MATTER WONDER
30 November 2019, 4:00–5:30 p.m.

Dark matter and dark energy are thought to make up 95 percent of the universe and are constantly passing through us and our planet. This panel discussion will explore the potential of artistic research intersections with dark matter scientific research. The prospect of there being more dark matter in the cosmos than anything else is a lure for artistic poiesis and scientific hypothesis. The enigma of unseen matter that we know to be there but yet is so difficult to directly detect compels creative research beyond disciplines. How do we respond to the wonder that the universe inspires in us at a time of human-induced change on earth? Presented by RMIT University School of Design in association with Leonardo/ISAST and ANAT.
