Quantum Inkblot: An evening of physics, psychology, art and astronomy.

Can quantum physics influence our perception? How can creativity and imagination be used to answer unsolved mysteries of the mind?

Join us for Quantum Inkblot, a collaborative, interactive evening presented by The H.R. MacMillan Space Centre and Voirelia: Dance, Psychology and Philosophy Hub. We will explore quantum physics through the lenses of physics, psychology, art, and astronomy. The evening will incorporate lectures by physicists and psychologists, feature state-of-the-art visual artwork, and original contemporary dance performances.

Between presentations there will be time to take part in interactive art activities, observe physics demonstrations, and chat with physicists, artists, and psychologists. Beer and wine will be available for purchase in the Cosmic Courtyard.
