Jiggling Atoms is an interdisciplinary science and illustration project exploring the wonders of particle physics, culminating in a unique exhibition at the Rag Factory in London’s East End. 25 artists illustrate the world as seen through the eyes of a scientist exploring the world of atoms, galaxies and particle detectors – artists include Camberwell BA Illustration tutors Peter Nencini and Geoffrey Coupland (Zeel) as well as recent BA Illustration graduates.
Jiggling Atoms was conceived by Camberwell BA Illustration graduate Natalie Kay-Thatcher and is co-curated and organised by Rosie Eveleigh, Jennifer Crouch (both also of Camberwell), Malte Oppermann and Dr. Ben Still. With support from the Science and Technology Facilities Council and The Institute of Physics, Jiggling Atoms seeks to increase the presence of science in the visual arts, opening a channel of science-oriented communication rarely used in this context or with this intensity.
