Following on from where Professor Jim Al Khalili’s ‘Shock and Awe’ (BBC) left off, Deptford based artist Paul Malone takes you on a unique and controversial tour of the Universe.
Originally devised to introduce artists and designers to the wide range of forms inherent in plasma structures, this talk follows contemporary speculations into the role that electro-dynamics play in the morphologies of objects that we see in modern astronomy. Otherwise known as ‘Electric Universe’ theory or ‘Plasma Cosmology’, it draws from publications by members of the IEEE and others and traces the history of the study of electricity in Space from Birkeland through Langmuir and Jeurgens to today’s advocates. Contains movies and images sourced from the internet, archives and the latest telescopes.
This event is to fund raise for the charity :
‘Empowering young people to be leaders of their own lives.’ www.se1united.org.uk
The talk is free to the public but please donate what you can at the door. Paul Malone studied sculpture at Reading University and the Royal College of Art and has since exhibited extensively in the UK and Europe. His studio is based at the Art in Perpetuity Trust in Deptford, London and his current work explores alternative, lost and forgotten scientific theories.
