Aha festival 2016

​Art x Science
October 31 - November 2, 2016
 
For the third year, the AHA festival investigates the meeting between art and science in a three-day event at the Chalmers University of Technology hosted by the Department of Architecture and the Department of Physics. An international festival intended to provide enlightening experiences, staging surprises, new thoughts and displaced perspectives that lead to alternative modes of thinking about exploring the world through art and science. We invite scientists (physicists, historians, astronomers, engineers), artists (dancers, musicians, painters, poets, acrobats) who reside in these borderlands and wish to share their vision and work. The key intention is to celebrate both art and science as key knowledge building devices.
The first year’s theme ’Embodiment’ (2014) explored the body as our anchor in the world, followed by the 2015 theme on ’Numbers’, a delightful net we cast over the world. This year's theme is ’Uni-verse,’ again a natural consequence of our interest in the relation between art and science. The elemental force that drives science as well as art is curiosity. Come be curious with us!
 
Everyone is welcome and admission is free to the AHA Festival which takes place October 31, November 1 and 2on Chalmers University Johanneberg campus at Chalmersplatsen 1, second floor of the Kårhuset at the atrium level entrance of the RunAn conference hall.
 

Program

Day 1: Curiosity
'Curiouser and curiouser!' cried Alice 'now I'm opening out like the largest telescope that ever was! Good-bye, feet!'
Day 2: Atmosphere
Weather, architecture, sounds, stimuli: a vapour globe that contains all life. Our atmosphere.
Day 3: Reformulate
New matter flows along the river bed of the world. The world must be reformulated every night and every day.
