Hidden Fields is a new art–physics collaboration that will be premièring at the Arnolfini art centre this Saturday as part of the Bristol Harbour Festival. Dancers interact with virtual quantum particles and fields to create colourful abstract images that are projected onto screens. The show is also accompanied by live music as a performer uses software to map the particle dynamics into musical scales.
The project’s mastermind is David Glowacki, who developed the idea using knowledge acquired through his day job as a theoretical chemist, as he explains in this video.
