Chemical Heritage Foundation Particle Falls Premiere

Particle Falls is a real-time visualization of air-quality data.  On a background of falling blue light, spots of bright, fiery color emerge and crackle, representing the presence of fine particulate matter in the air.   This digital-media installation will be projected onto the Wilma Theater facade starting on September 26, 2013.   Join us for a reception and panel discussion with the artist, Andrea Polli, and the director of Drexwl University's ExCITe Center, Youngmoo Kim, on the intersection between art, science, and digital media.  How can art help the public better understand science?  How can art help the public better understand science?   How can artistic visualization help scientists communicate their work?
