A Very Dark Matter

A session at Connections #1: Weak Signals

In physics, the darkness is the most illuminating place to look if
you want to understand the Universe right now. We now know that 26.8%
of all matter is dark. And dark energy accounts for 68.3% of all
energy. So nearly 96% of the Universe is dark. It is there; but
invisible.

Our understanding of the dark universe is not just the result of
scientific research and technological innovation. Artists have been
active in producing some of the most powerful and persistent ideas
about the possibilities of of invisible universe we exist within.
Just as the cartographers of the past worked hand-in-hand with
artists who illustrated and interpreted the new worlds they
discovered, the dark universe is being mapped, visualised and
sonified by artists.

Honor's talk will touch upon how culture can help illuminate the darkness.
