During National Science & Engineering Week science and art merged at the Experience Changing Perspectives event as physics buskers filled the Circomedia Building in Portland Square, Bristol on 18th and 19th March 2011.
Between aerial displays of human anatomy, 11 undergraduate and postgraduate volunteers from the University of Bristol School of Physics, Bristol Centre for Functional Nanomaterials and the Bristol Centre for Complexity Science busked science style for school groups and members of the public.
On the Saturday the general public were in for a similar treat, not only did the sun shine all day, but IOP volunteers with bright orange experiments bags showed everyone who would stand still long enough a range of exciting physics tricks, engaging with about 130 people.
Changing Perspectives is a range of projects, exhibitions and events from Bristol University’s Centre for Public Engagement, exploring relationships between art and science through artist and academic collaborations. Find out more on their website here: www.bristol.ac.uk/changingperspectives.
