Science Inspired: Visualizing Scientific Concepts through Sculpture, with Rebecca Kamen

9:00am - 11:30am

How would you model an atom with a piece of string, some cotton, and straws? Could we understand gravitational waves better if we could hear them? In Rebecca Kamen’s upcoming workshop, she examines the process of making the Invisible Visible, and gives us the opportunity to re-imagine how scientific modelling takes place, bringing it back to material exploration and distilled fundamental concepts.  All participants will be making models from everyday objects to better communicate the scientific ideas.  There will be…

“Holding Einstein’s Brain: A Catalyst for Awakening Scientific Discovery Through Art“ – American Artist Rebecca Kamen

4:00pm - 5:30pm

Description: Scientist and artists are storytellers, using their work to tell nature’s story. As artist, the rare invitation to research at Harvard University’s Center for Astrophysics and the Neuroscience Program at National Institute of Health has enabled her to observe similar dynamics, and visual patterns at the micro and macro level.  This presentation will explore how artwork inspired by scientific research and scientific special collections provide a new lens for seeing and understanding science. Presented by the Faculty of Science,…

Patterned Perceptions: Discoveries Between Art, Science, and Indigenous Cultures, Rebecca Kamen

2:30pm - 4:00pm

Perception of patterns and the visual stories they weave provide an exciting bridge between diverse fields of study.  This PPT presentation will investigate how pattern serves as a catalyst for creating new visual relationships between art, science and Indigenous cultures, with a focus on Native American and Aboriginal artifacts and culture. Several of multi-media art installations inspired by patterns in nature and indigenous cosmology will be discussed, including a recent artist residency project in Australia inspired by Aboriginal art, science, and culture and…

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy of Model Nuclear Waste Glasses

3:30pm - 4:30pm

Arun Krishnamurthy Department of Chemistry, University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada Ph.D. Colloquium: Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy of Model Nuclear Waste Glasses Glass is widely used as a matrix to immobilize high-level nuclear waste owing to its beneficial properties such as chemical durability, inertness, high waste loading capacity and ease of preparation. One problem with most common glass compositions is their limited Mo solubility, which can result in the formation of water-soluble radionuclide-containing crystalline phases. We have been exploring alternate…
