Fluid Bodies: from the Celestial to the Subatomic

The artworks of EvelinaDomnitch and Dmitry Gelfand explore exotic fluid phenomena, from sonoluminescence to Saturn’s hexagonal polar vortex. Pushing the very thresholds of observability, their endeavours raise questions as to what can and cannot be ultimately perceived and comprehended about physical reality. The duo will discuss their 20-year trajectory, culminating in a recent collaboration with the 2017 Nobel Prize winner, LIGO (Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory).
