Nahum – Voyage: An encounter with a Neutrino (A Hypnosis Performance)
The neutrino is among the elusive of particles, a subatomic wisp so ephemeral it zips through the planet rarely leaving a trace. Despite its extraordinary abundance - billions pass through your body every second - this ghostly particle is notoriously difficult to detect.
'Voyage: An encounter with a neutrino' is a project by artist Nahum that explores the possibility of having a personal, intimate encounter with a fundamental particle, and sensing your deep connection to our planet, our Sun, and to the solar system in which we live, achieving something that physicists build vast underground detectors to realise.
Date: Sunday 15 April, 5-6pm
Location: The Pod
Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art
c/o National Glass Centre
Tickets: £6/£4 unwaged, booking essential
