Abstract Title: The Art Lab Project: The Schrodinger’s Cat is in Town!
Abstract: Physics seems to be intimidating for the general public and art is a powerful medium that can be used to visualise physics. We organized the first session of 2-hour public workshop series that brought together physicists, artists and the public in a venue that physics phenomena was communicated through art. Guest physicists present one or several physics concepts briefly and broadly via a short (5-10 minute) ignite talk/presentation.The audience, with the help of both artists and physicists in the room, are encouraged to use words/figures/cardboards/printed pictures/paint/other media in order to create visual posters of the concepts presented.The activities take place in several groups and the best work is selected by the public. These events are co-hosted and sponsored by the The Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at MSU.
