Signatures of the Invisible

McMullen, Ken (2001) Signatures of the Invisible. [Show/Exhibition]

Type of Research: Show/Exhibition
Creators: McMullen, Ken

This touring exhibition foregrounded high energy physics, which deals with events so small that they are known only by their mathematical signatures. Artists engaged in extended dialogue with scientists at CERN (including Michael Dosser and John March Russell), observing innovatory practical and theoretical procedures. Over 50 new artworks were made which gave creative form to different ‘invisible’ aspects of antimatter, relativity and quantum mechanics. They were linked by the contrast between how the world is viewed and how it might be represented.

'Signatures of the Invisible' toured to six locations. Ken McMullen was responsible for the conceptualisation and co-curation of the project including numerous events, the selection of participating artists and the contribution of a fifth of the total exhibits (10 new works).
