An exhibition that constructs and deconstructs the discoveries of physics one leap at a time.
A multimedia and interactive exhibition to understand and experience the changing behaviour of matter and light, through a journey from the certainties of classical physics to the paradoxes of quantum physics and the consequent innovations.
Certainty and uncertainty
The idea of the exhibition design is inspired by the concept of certainty and uncertainty that characterise the principles of scientific discoveries: filters that decompose images and objects, lenticular graphics that multiply points of view and stories, evanescent and transparent materials that make surface fragmentary, traversable and changeable.
The visitor experience multiplies the viewpoints from which to look at reality: from the micro to the macro, from bodies to particles. The exhibition design makes this change of scale tangible, restoring an increasingly fragmentary, blurred and elusive perception of the reality that surrounds us.
Understanding the complexity through interactive experiences
Through interactive installations scattered in the exhibition sections, visitors can experience and understand complex concepts underlying quantum mechanics and the mechanisms that shape the universe in a simple and intuitive way. The installations are both off-scale real experiments and artistic simulations to identify and better understand contents and the scientific observation of the world that surrounds us.
