Globe Gallery participated in the British Science Festival in September, opening with the Electromagnetic Pulse Party on September 7. The party was a roaring success, taking place over three floors at the Globe. Visitors interacted with audio-visual installations and made their own glowing artwork. The marshmallow experiment produced many edible intrigues! The event featured the warped sounds of Waitress for the Bees, Forbidden Colour, The Turing Test and Razamaz Lorry Excitement.
We went on to showcase the HeliOscillator, plus some fun participatory experiments. The HeliOscillator was an audio visual installation created for the University of Sheffield’s Festival of the Mind. It takes real data of magnetic waves observed in the Sun’s atmosphere and translates them into an audio-visual experience.
