STARTING POINT – LUIS GOMES GARDEN

In this installation, Jan and his team will explore the story of the humanization of cosmic space. The Evolution of the Stars is a site-specific project that consists of thirteen audio-visual installations that tells the story of the life and death of stars. The exhibitions describes the evolution of matter from the clouds of cold gas and dust, through the main sequence stars, the amazing supernovae blast and finally, the presence of metals in human blood. These narratives  touch on the subject of place and the meaning of humans in the cosmic space. It explains that the Cosmos is built of stars and galaxies rather than planets, continents or countries. Thus, humans also, are made of the stuff of stars. The exhibition will consist of intriguing visual and audio metaphors projected in locations around the city. Spectators will be invited to embark on a journey which will inspire wonderment at the mysteries of space.

Instytut B61

Institute B61 was created in 2009 and premiered during UNESCO’s International Year of Astronomy 2009. It gathers scientists and artists from Poland, who present performances at the intersection of science and contemporary art. The Institute stages unique and intimate performances inspired by modern science, involving the best Polish musicians, actors and visual artists. Each spectacle is an ephemeral experience in an intriguing space (museums, factory, fort, tenement-house – always prepared as a site-specific event), which often makes it possible for the spectators to re-discover their own city. Viewers visit several interiors, installations, attend performances and concerts. For the last seven years, Institute B61 has been conducting intensive experimental research which has resulted in the formulation of over one hundred multimodal metaphors of scientific phenomena. Multiple sample groups made from 20,000 randomly selected volunteers from 5 countries have been involved in interacting with the findings of our interdisciplinary team.
