Art & Science 36: Mental Limit

by the AMVA4NewPhysics press office

The work titled “Limite mentale” (mental limit) is the result of the artistic effort of Luca Seccarello and Nanni Visintin, students from the Liceo “G.B. Benedetti” of Venice who along with 70 more participated in the “Art & Science” contest organized by the AMVA4NewPhysics network in Venice as part of a bigger initiative of the “CREATIONS” EU network.

Two days now are left before the prize-giving event in “Sala Perla” at the Palazzo del Casinò of the Lido of Venice, where since Continue reading “Art & Science 36: Mental Limit”

Art & Science 35: NGM

by the AMVA4NewPhysics press office

The work strangely titled “NGM” (it’s an acronym for the names of its three authors) is quite strange-looking, both for the choice of materials and for its visual appearance. The three high-school students who produced it (Nicolò Patrizio, Giovanni Felisi, Matteo Carraro), from the Liceo “G.B. Benedetti” of  Venice, explained that the choice of materials was at the very heart of their creative process.

Wood and copper were used to assemble a structure that remains a Continue reading “Art & Science 35: NGM”

Art & Science Exposition Starts Today!

Art & Science 34: Untitled

by the AMVA4NewPhysics press office

Leonardo Cosma, Francesco Turcato and Nicola Vianello, from Liceo “G.B. Benedetti” in Venice are the authors of a untitled work that they composed using a Newton pendulum, glass, and a mirror in a metal frame.

The idea of particles moving and breaking glass appears in this work as in the one presented in the previous post. Here, however, the idea is to show the dynamics of the interaction between colliding bodies, which can be Continue reading “Art & Science 34: Untitled”

Art & Science 33: Footprint of a Collision

by the AMVA4NewPhysics press office

The work “Impronta di una collisione” (footprint of a collision) is authored by Emma Da Re and Alessia Scarpa, two high-school students from the Liceo “G.B. Benedetti” of Venice. They tried to picture the concept that when we study the collisions that give rise new particles such as the Higgs boson, we cannot observe the real target of our investigation, but rather the effect that its production has on the surrounding space. Similarly, the breaking of glass can be observed “after the Continue reading “Art & Science 33: Footprint of a Collision”

Art & Science 32: MAP (the Manual Accelerator of Particles)

by the AMVA4NewPhysics press office

The artwork titled “MAP” presented here is surprising in a way. The students of Liceo Benedetti who produced it (Matteo Bertola, Alberto Perosa, Giacomo Indri) exhibited quite a bit of imagination in creating a “particle” accelerator using kitchenware: a manual salad dryer. They inserted three coloured plastic balls in it, added some coloured wire to the exterior of the rotating cell, and that is it: the MAP.

The pictures below do not pay justice to the concept, as what Continue reading “Art & Science 32: MAP (the Manual Accelerator of Particles)”

Art & Science 31: Bo(om)son

by the AMVA4NewPhysics press office

The work titled “Bo(om)son” was created by Nicolò Dall’Asta, Matilde Giupponi, and Tommaso Gridella, al from Liceo “G.B. Benedetti” of Venice. They used a blackboard, nails, coloured elastics, and they surrounded the board with a tape with led lights (the latter cannot be seen in the image provided below, unfortunately).

The geometric theme transpires from this compostion, which like Continue reading “Art & Science 31: Bo(om)son”

Art & Science 30: Explosion

by the AMVA4NewPhysics press office

The thirtieth work presented here was created by high school students of Liceo “G.B.Benedetti” by Francesca Vavasori, Alexis Venturi, and Acebo Venice Maria Fe Sales. The composition is three-dimensional and consists in a structure supporting two balls tiled with small mosaics.

The  students took free inspiration from a particle collision Continue reading “Art & Science 30: Explosion”

Art & Science 29: The Boson Theatre

by the AMVA4NewPhysics press office

 The title of this surprising sculpture is “Il teatro del bosone” (the boson theatre). It is the work of three high-school students of Liceo “Benedetti” in Venice who, like many of their peers, decided to render in a three-dimensional way the colourful particle collision images they had been shown during the initial seminars of the “Art & Science” project. At variance from other teams, however, they found a rather interesting solution to the three-dimensional challenge.

The team assembled layers of plexiglass over which they painted drops of colours, as if taking snapshots of particles exiting the collision point at different Continue reading “Art & Science 29: The Boson Theatre”
