Black Holes and Other Transformations is an exhibition by students and alumni from Emily Carr University of Art + Design, and Berlin University of the Arts, which investigates contemporary art practice that is informed, inspired and mystified by areas of science such as physics, chemistry, mathematics and biology.
“Science is used as a lens through which one can look at and speak about the world, the invisible forces of the known universe, and other theoretical dimensions.” Associate Professor, Ingrid Koenig
This exhibition is inspired by an artist-in-residency program between Emily Carr University of Art + Design and the TRIUMF Particle Physics Lab at the University of British Columbia, as well as a collaboration with the Berlin University of the Arts, where a number of students spent time at TRIUMF meeting with physicists, and creating or envisioning art works.
The timing of Black Holes and Other Transformations coincides with the 2010-2011 school year being proclaimed by Premier Gordon Campbell as the Year of Science for BC elementary and post-secondary schools.
Jurors: Randy Lee Cutler, Ingrid Koenig (Associate Professors, ECUAD) Elvira Hufschmid, Margit Schild (Visiting Artists in residence, Berlin University of the Arts)
Student Curators: Rosemary Burden, Emma Kesler, Debbie Westergaard Tuepah
