One of the biggest and most profound mysteries in contemporary physics today is what exactly makes up our Universe, and why 95 per cent of it is seemingly missing.
The DARK MATTER season will examine the fundamental nature of reality – and attempt to make sense of what we deem to be 'real'– through artistic, scientific and philosophical investigation, and research from King's Faculty of Natural and Mathematical Sciences.
The theory of the ever-elusive Dark Matter forms the starting point of this exploration into fundamental physics, matter and materiality. The season will probe further into the concept of invisibility and infinite divisibility and investigate the human pursuit for absolute truth and knowledge.
DARK MATTER will feature newly-commissioned and existing works by a diverse group of international artists including Desire Machine Collective, Andy Holden, Carey Young, Aura Satz, Semiconductor and Enrico Sachetti, alongside research from Theoretical Physicist, Professor Malcolm Fairbairn from King's College London and the university's Theoretical Particle Physics & Cosmology Group.
