Cycle Cycle
Video produced by Marció Paranhos, one of four young artists that have produced their own interpretation of the science that scientisists do in ERSF, the centre of scientific excellence located in Grenoble. Marció Paranhos tried to capture into a computer animation sequence the invisible energy that circulated in the experimental hall of the synchrotron.
Marcio Paranhos Marcio Paranhos
Marcio Paranhos is a 22 years old multimedia artist from Portugal. His project - CYCLE - is an attempt to answer the question: "How can I show science to people?" He created a world where science is everywhere, and is part of everyday life.
Nina Grunova Nina Grunova
Nina Grunova is a 21 years old painter from Czech Republic, and her painting is based on the scanned data of a fossil wasp. The process of painting reproduces the principle of layering that is used in 3D printing to generate a plastic model. Because of the properties of colors used in the impasto painting technique, the layers of painting are tangible and visible on the surface...
Jan Nalepa Jan Nalepa
Jan Nalepa is a 26 years old new media artist from Czech Republic and his sculpture and video installation - H1N1- is a simulation of the hallucinatory state that leads the human organism infected with a virus (such as disorientation in space, distortion of shapes and structures, etc.)
Charlotte Winroth Charlotte Winroth
Charlotte Winroth is a 25 years old digital artist from Sweden, and she has been inspired by many different aspects of the life in the scientific center, from the crocodiles embryos to the "sound" produced by matter or the coffee breaks scientists need to take sometime....

Nanopolis Nanopolis
Tesla Union and the New Stage of National Theatre present Night in NanoPOLIS show 12/12/11, ..an experimental art, music and dance encounter with science. Night in nanoPOLIS is an expedition into the realm of the nano dimensions. The viewer is immersed into very different and restless world of 10-9 m and showcased examples of nanotechnology encompassing medicine as well as thea...
On the Way to Immortality Rome, 2011 On the Way to Immortality Rome, 2011
The articulation of these artistic languages creates a grid of movements related to organic processes, similar to the way the pieces on a chessboard develop a life history through the game. “On the Way of Immortality“ is inspired by the movements and the vibrations of atoms and molecules. Through the medium of dance, it expresses and reproduces the proliferation and differe...

Stem cells - ISWA project Stem cells - ISWA project
The general properties of the stem cells is presented, namely the ability to proliferate and, under certain conditions, to differentiate in other types of cells. In this way they can generate a new tissue replacing a damaged one, and also a new organ (like blood, thrachea, liver, heart, skin, cornea and very recently retina). A stamp is shown, which was emitted by the Japanes...
The huge machines of physics - ISWA project The huge machines of physics - ISWA project
At first an introduction is presented related to the goals of the subnuclear physics, trying to discovery the fundamental laws of the universe. In particular the Large Hadron Collider is presented which was recently built at Genevra, having a circumpherence of 27 Km. The phylosophy of the basic research there performed is discussed, in particular the search for peculiar particl...
Fractals - ISWA project Fractals - ISWA project
The definition of fractals is presented from a mathematical point of view. Than several examples of fractals are considered, starting from a centenary oak till the snow crystals and several biological structures, both in the vegetable world and in the animal world. In particular it is reported that also the human bones possess a fractal structure. This fact constitutes a justi...
The relativity theory - ISWA project The relativity theory - ISWA project
A short introduction of the Relativity Theory of Einstein is presented. Then the film deals with the relativity of time, presenting the famous paradox of the two twins. According to the theory if one of them is travelling with a speed approaching the light velocity it remains much younger than the brother, who remained on the earth. Then the contraction of lengths is be address...
Crystals, liquid crystals, photonic crystals Crystals, liquid crystals, photonic crystals
Initially the concept of the symmetry is introduced by using several experimental examples. Then the concept of periodicity is be introduced at unidimensional, bidimensional and threedimensional level. Some examples of threedimensional crystalline structures is presented. Then the application of crystalline structure in the field of electronics, biotecnologies and solar energy ...
Oscillations and Waves - ISWA project Oscillations and Waves - ISWA project
The movie starts with the view of gentleman, similar to Galileo Galilei letting oscillate a pendulum consisting of a wire of about 1 m length, sustaining an apple. The pendulum oscillates and the oscillation period is recorded. Then seven girls come out suddenly and eat rapidly the apple: the period of oscillation of the remaing central part of the apple is exactly the same as...
Nanotechnologies - ISWA project Nanotechnologies - ISWA project
The movie presents at first the observation techniques used by the scientists in the different times to explore the matter with a progressively increasing spatial resolution, till the observation of single atoms, after the discovery of the atomic force microscope. Then the applications of nanostructured materials in different field of technology are considered, like medicine, c...
