The neutrino is among the most elusive of particles, a subatomic wisp so ephemeral it zips through the planet rarely leaving a trace. Despite its extraordinary abundance - billions pass through your body every second - this ghostly particle is notoriously difficult to detect.
Voyage: An encounter with a neutrino
is a project and hypnosis performance by artist Nahum
that explores the possibility of having a personal, intimate encounter with a fundamental particle, and of sensing your deep connection to our planet, our Sun, and to the solar system in which we live, achieving something that physicists build vast underground detectors to realise.
Tickets are £6/4 unwaged and very limited so book now
to avoid disappointment!
The event forms part of KOSMICA: Ethereal Things
and Fiona Crisp’s exhibition Material Sight
. It is a partnership between Arts Catalyst, the KOSMICA Institute, Fiona Crisp (Northumbria University), and NGCA, supported by Durham University and Boulby Underground Laboratory.
For this project we gratefully acknowledge the funding support of the UK's Science and Technology Facilities Council.
Unfortunately, due to unavoidable unforeseen circumstances, we are having to cancel Nahum's performance Voyage – An Encounter with a Neutrino
. If you have already booked, we would be happy to exchange your ticket for a space at KOSMICA: Ethereal Things
, or please request a refund via eventbrite and we will refund you. Our Intimate Physics Encounters
afternoon at our Centre will still be going ahead as planned.
