One of the biggest mysteries in physics today is what exactly makes up our Universe, and why – according to the world’s leading scientists – 95 per cent of it cannot be observed. Imagining the unseen and questioning the invisible, DARK MATTER explores matter and materiality, the concept of invisibility and infinite divisibility, and the human quest for absolute truth and knowledge.
Through a free exhibition and events programme, DARK MATTER combines art, physics and philosophy and draws on the latest research from the Department of Physics at King’s College London. The season highlights the critical role of artists, philosophers and storytellers in our understanding of the world around us and invites audiences to question their understanding of physics and even reality itself.
Drawing on her visits to CERN and conversations with physicists at King’s, Yu-Chen Wang’s new large-scale intricate drawing installation will explore the concepts of dark matter and how knowledge is created.
