Broken Symmetries: Tamara Vázquez Schröder & SU Wen-Chi

Episode 6,   Aug 02, 2022, 04:00 AM

Choreographer and dancer SU Wen-Chi was at CERN in 2016. Her time in the Laboratory marked a long-term engagement with physics, and it inspired the trilogy comprising Unconditional Love, Infinity Minus One and Anthropic Shadow. Joining in conversation is experimental physicist Támara Vázquez Schröder, who works at the ATLAS Experiment at the Large Hadron Collider. 

In this conversation, they discuss the role of symmetries in fundamental physics and performance art, the process of creating new artworks by SU Wen-Chi after her residency at CERN, and how broken symmetries can explain the natural world. 

The conversation is hosted by Ana Prendes, Content Producer at Arts at CERN.
