Project Name: Dark matter. Gravity. Imaging the Universe after Einstein

Project Type: Scientific installation (Immersive Video Installation + remote controller)

When and Where: December 2017- April 2018, Roma Museum MAXXI

Immersive Video Installation + remote controller on the behaviour of the dark matter, showcased inside the exhibit “Gravity. Imaging the Universe after Einstein” promoted by INFN and MAXXI (curated by Luigia Lonardelli, Vincenzo Napolano, Andrea Zanini
scientific advice: Giovanni Amelino-Camelia).

The project is the result of a unique collaboration between the museum, the Italian Space Agency and the National Institute of Nuclear Physics for the scientific side and the Argentine artists Tomás Saraceno for the artistic aspects.

Immersive artistic and scientific installations, iconic artefacts and simulations of experiments drawing us closer to the essence of the scientific innovations introduced by Einstein and revealing the underlying depths of the known universe, but also the mechanisms that bind together all those searching for knowledge, in a collective process in which artists and scientists play roles of equally fundamental significance to society.
