Interesting News in Physics
A new project known as “Danceroom Spectroscopy” represents a genuine fusion of art and science, resulting in an impressive visual art show that is driven by real physical laws.
The project’s mastermind is David Glowacki, a researcher at the University of Bristol in the UK. In this special video report, Glowacki talks to Physics World journalist James Dacey about his stimulus for the project and how the technology involved was inspired by some of the concepts from his research in theoretical chemistry. Glowacki describes how the project came about through a conversation with a friend about making music via motion. “What we quickly found out was that the idea had been done to death, so I came up with a more interesting way of attacking that problem,” he explains.
