Parameters for Understanding Uncertainty: Creative Practice and Sonic Detection as Strategies for Scientific Outreach.
The project “Parameters for Understanding Uncertainty: Creative Practice and Sonic Detection as Strategies for Scientific Outreach (P4UU)” investigates how methodologies used in artistic research meet those in the physical sciences.
Dr Rebecca Collins, lead investigator of this Royal Society of Edinburgh funded project, uses innovative methods to make complex scientific concepts legible to non-specialist audiences. These methods include putting artistic researchers in dialogue with physicists, somatic approaches to sharing research processes, and working with composers to create sound art to offer alternative ways to imagine and access the world of matter.
For the duration of 2022-23 Dr Collins, lecturer in Contemporary Art Theory at the University of Edinburgh, is artist-in-residence at the Instituto de Física Teórica (IFT UAM-CSIC) to carry out this work.
