Parallel Universe is a series of projects organised by Arts Catalyst, the art/science agency, to challenge the idea that science is the monopoly of western culture. The following events will be held at the South London Gallery from 13 to 22 March:
Artist Ansuman Biswas will present a continuous ten-day performance-installation, enclosing himself in a black box in the gallery space, to re-examine the famous quantum physics thought experiment ‘Schroedinger’s Cat’. The work is a comparative study of the 2,500-year-old Indian science of ‘vipassana’ and modern scientific methodology. During the ten days, the artist will attempt to maintain close continuous observation of all physical phenomena.
