Yesterday the three paintings for Cardiff School of Physics and Astronomy department were put up on the wall in the new coffee area for permanent display. It's wonderful to see these three settled in their new home. When Dr. Dan Read and I first met we were in the Pier Head building for Cardiff Science Festival 3 years ago. He had his marvelous magnetic demonstrations and I had some paintings up displaying Diffusion Tensor Images of my brain. A year later I'm down in the basement Labs of the Physic department with some canvases and paint and Dan with his liquid nitrogen setting up the Messiner effect, showing me the 'monster machine', explaining about Magnetic Monopoles and Cane, Charlie and Danny Phd student popping in demonstrating all sorts such the Levatron , see the video below its very cool! I'm very much looking forward to continuing working with the department and yesterday I met Prof. Steve Eales, Dr. Richard Lewis and Prof. Mark Hannam. We discuss the colliding of black holes and gravity waves and this may well lead to some very interesting new cutting edge artsci work... Richard briefly explained about capturing the trails left by neutrinos and I'd love to talk with him more about this.
