Labpunk : the art in physics

conference contribution
posted on 06.12.2017, 00:00 by Anita Milroy, M Wegener
Physics can fascinate because of its aesthetics. We see possibilities for art in the artefacts of physics – lab equipment, experimental results, theoretical models - in the artistic appeal of observed phenomena, beautiful objects used in doing physics, a pleasing curve that relates parameters... A scientist with a passion for art (MJ Wegener) and an artist with a passion for science (AK Milroy), we are collaboratively making original jewellery / art objects by re-purposing physics artefacts. We call these souvenirs of the work of physicists, transformed into art, Labpunk.
