Levitating atoms: artistic possibilities of levitation with ultrasound
Adam Nieman joins us to share a collaborative research project that involves acoustic levitation, levitating objects using ultrasound.
Researchers at the University of Bristol and University of Sussex have made exciting progress in acoustic levitation (using ultrasound to levitate objects). They have been working on increasing control whilst reducing the cost - but what is levitation actually good for?
This talk will explore practical and cultural applications, and demonstrate the state of the art in levitation.
This Lunchtime Talk is part of Open Studio Friday, which takes place at the Studio every week.
Do you want to find out what is going on at the Pervasive Media Studio? Are you interested in meeting our residents, talking about a specific project or curious about pervasive media? Why not pack a sandwich and join us for one of our Lunchtime Talks and Open Studio Friday.
Lunchtime Talks are informal presentations by Studio residents and associates. They normally take place at 1pm on Friday, are free and open to everybody who’s interested in what we do.
After the talk, we also invite you to stay with us for our Open Studio Friday afternoon to continue the conversation or work on your own projects. We provide chairs, tables, wireless and a great space. You bring what you need to work with (laptop/mobile). Our open afternoons close at 5pm. Let us know if you’d like a tour of the space and we'll be happy to show you around just before the talk. Send an email to: email@example.com to book your place on a tour.
