From November 10th to November 19th 2010, the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNF) and Swiss artists-in-labs presented “QUARC Quantum Art Crystal” a light sculpture by Christian Gonzenbach at the premises of the SNF in Bern.
Christian Gonzenbach participated at the Swiss artists-in-labs program in 2009. During nine months he dealt with particular physics at the University of Geneva/CERN. While physicists are trying to explain the Universe with mathematical models, Gonzenbach tries to do so with experiments that he developed and conducted during his residency using objects of our everyday life. One of his resulting artworks has been adapted especially for this exhibition. “QUARC Quantum Art Crystal” is an installation with light tubes which are switched on and off by a random generator.
