A free exhibition and events programme at Science Gallery London exploring the elusive building blocks of our universe through art, physics and philosophy


One of the biggest mysteries in physics today is what exactly makes up our Universe, and why – according to the world’s leading scientists – 95 per cent of it cannot be observed.

In summer 2019, Science Gallery London will explore the elusive building blocks of the Universe with DARK MATTER, a free exhibition and events season combining art, physics and philosophy, and drawing on the latest research from the Faculty of Natural & Mathematical Sciences at King’s College London.

Exhibition highlights include:

● an immersive animation installation by Andy Holden which reflects on the physics of a cartoon landscape, developed with Professor John Ellis from the Department of Physics at King’s College London;

●  translucent spider webs which mimic the structure of dark matter in the universe by Tomás Saraceno;

●  a new installation translating dark matter simulations into sound patterns by Aura Satz, in collaboration with Professor Malcolm Fairbairn from the Department of Physics at King’s College London; and

●  perpetually changing liquid crystal paintings by Agnieszka Kurant which will transform according to the ‘energy’ of social media feeds around the world.
