The book Dialogues avec les physiciens tells the story of Horizons Irrésolus, a sound installation by artists Rudy Decelière and Vincent Hänni produced with cosmologist Diego Blas and physicist Robert Kieffer after their residency at CERN in 2014
How do artists and scientists engage in dialogue? What are the major challenges?
The book Dialogues avec les physiciens tells the story behind Horizons Irrésolus – a sound installation by musician Vincent Hänni and sound artist Rudy Decelière produced in collaboration with cosmologist Diego Blas and physicist Robert Kieffer following their residency at CERN in 2014.
Developed over nearly two years, the installation consists of a network made up of 888 micro synthesizers and speakers, which create a global, variable and autonomous sound devoid of centralized control.
