See atoms in a new way with danceroom Spectroscopy

Atoms are made up of a little spherical nucleus with orbiting electrons, right? Well not quite. Dr David Glowacki, a Royal Society research fellow and one of the first Pervasive Media Studio residents, has led a collaborative project called danceroom Spectroscopy, that captures the energy fields surrounding our nanoworld and visualises them in surprising and beautiful ways on a 360 degree screen.

As an additional stroke of genius, a dance performance called Hidden Fields is integrated with the showcase to shift and shape the atomic energy in the room.

The award interactive visualisation of the nano-world will be presented by University of Bristol and Watershed at Brunel’s Old Station in Bristol 24 – 26 October. Find out more at
