So my brief for my fourth year project essentially revolves around making science and physics more accessible, relating it to familiar concepts that people can understand. Im trying to avoid dumbing down my subject matter, but I've had to take a few liberties to get the message across. This project aims to combine radio astronomy with our familiarity with sounds and music, dismissing the notion that space is just a silent expanse. Although im having to exclude a lot of the 'real science' behind my visuals, the hope is that they inspire people to see the universe in a different light and find out more detailed information for themselves.
Or to put it another way, I need to stop watching science fiction programmes and Brian Cox documentaries.
