Art & Science 39: Light’s Perspectives

by the AMVA4NewPhysics press office

Unlike previously understood, the last artwork by Venice high-school students featured in this blog, of a total of 39, is titled “Le prospettive della luce” (light’s perspectives). It is a video produced by Alberto Bentsik, Tommaso Moretti, and Samuele Tonello , students of the Liceo “G.B. Benedetti”. The students filmed themselves as they worked on a wooden board, and produced a high-speed video that shows their actions like in a movie from the nineteen-twenties. This allowed them to “document” their creative process, which is a bit mysterious as we only get to see them planting nails on the board and doing other slightly obscure operations on it. The board is shown below.

In the final frames of the video is shown the real result of their work – streaks of colour produced by red led lights shining on the board: that is their Continue reading “Art & Science 39: Light’s Perspectives”

Art & Science 38: Boson Motion

by the AMVA4NewPhysics press office

Elisa Brocca and Emma Troni, two students from Liceo “G.B. Benedetti”, are the authors of the video titled “Boson Motion”. The students captured the video as a succession of frames that try to picture the collision of two LHC protons with coloured balls, and to explain the motion of massive and massless particles in the presence of the Higgs boson field. The result is a fun animation.

The Art & Science contest is coming to a close, as tomorrow evening Continue reading “Art & Science 38: Boson Motion”

Art & Science 37: The God Particle

by the AMVA4NewPhysics press office

Five of the 39 works produced by the high school students of Venice for the Art & Science contest are video recordings. In general, the footage recording skills of the students have been shown to be quite good. In the video presented here this is especially true: the product is quite well assembled, the perspectives and colours are chosen with care, and the result pleasing.

The students who produced the video are Filippo Baldan, Lorenzo Bottoni and Elia Mariotto, from the Liceo “G.B. Benedetti” in Venice. I must say that the creative process that led to this video, which allegedly started from the lectures on Continue reading “Art & Science 37: The God Particle”

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”

SciComm in Erice

by Giles Strong

Last week I, along with fellow network ESR Pablo, attended the International School of Science Journalism in Erice, on the Italian island of Sicily. As regular readers of this blog will know, scientific outreach plays an important role in our network activities, and I’d attended with the hope of gaining tips for better simplifying and presenting my research. Continue reading “SciComm in Erice”

Art & Science Exposition Starts Today!

lidocasinoThe EPS conference starts this afternoon in the Palazzo del Casinò of the Lido of Venice. For three days the big palace facing the Adriatic sea will host the parallel Continue reading “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”
