Topic 2020

Image source: 20Hz observes a geo-magnetic storm occurring in the Earth’s upper atmosphere. Working with data collected from the CARISMA radio array and interpreted as audio, we hear tweeting and rumbles caused by the incoming solar wind, captured at the frequency of 20 Hertz.


In this year's Digital Fabrication module, we will attempt to give substance to the fantastic phenomena governed by quantum mechanics. Quantum theory describes the behaviour of particles and energy in their smallest form, where substances that make up our world appear to behave in a very unworldly way. Students will create lively physical representations of quantum phenomena at a macro scale, leading to scenes that completely disobey the conventions of classical physics. Do these substances exist simultaneously in one place and another? Do they behave vastly different when observed, and when not? Do they break the boundaries of space-time? What possibilities exist for interaction between people and such exotic substances?

Students will explore the topic with sketches, rendering and 3D printed objects and a short animation. This animation will be supported by a brief explanatory text situating it in the real world.
