An exciting exhibition about science related arts and fundamental physics brought to you by Osmosis Projects Supported by Tower Hamlets Council and Arts Council England


The show titled "Eureka! Art Pavilion"  is a coming together of many arts and science enthusiasts.

All the artists' works are inspired in some way by science and discovery and variously refer to fundamental physics, liquids, kinetic energy, sound frequencies and light waves. 

The Exhibition will have a festival feel with a focus on making the arts and sciences more accessible to families and encouraging young people into science, engineering and the arts.

The work comes from diverse backgrounds and disciplines and includes award winning artist Virginia Verran winner of the Jerwood Drawing Prize 2010. The show also celebrates up and coming artists like Zoe Schoenherr the Leverhulme Trust Artist-in-Residence 2015 based at UCL engineering. Other cross disciplinary engineering based artists include Tom Wilkinson, Samuel Zealey and Tine Bech

2015 also sees the UNESCO International year of Light which is a global initiative which highlights the importance of light and optical technologies in the lives and futures of developed societies. As part of this celebration Eureka! has invited David Medalla to make a  new version of his famous interactive piece entitled 'THE COSMIC TYPEWRITER : homage to dsh',

A launch event will contain music and projections followed by two days worth of workshops and an open discussion debate with Physicists from Queen Mary School of Physics and Astronomy.

Free Gloop Making Workshops for Young People by Osmosis Projects

The workshops are free and are specifically aimed at encouraging younger audiences into physics and the arts. Workshop attendees are invited to make gloop which is a mixture of PVA and borax. When combined with water the borax reacts with the glue molecules binding the polymers together resulting in a semi-solid plastic-like material. This material then can be taken through some observational tests and applied to lessons in learning via our Gloop Olympics competition.

The workshops are run on a first come first serve basis and are designed specifically for younger audiences ages 7 upwards who must also be accompanied by an adult. Class sizes can accommodate up to 30 people and are performed twice daily on Saturdays 24th and 31st of October. The workshops are at set times only 10.30am-12pm & 2pm-3.30pm

The exhibition and workshops will be held  at "The Art Pavilion" which is a deluxe arts centre set amongst a green park close to Mile End tube station and which is owned and managed by Tower Hamlets Council.
