Another national outreach award for danceroom Spectroscopy!

DS FESTIVAL -158-compressed

Good news! danceroom Spectroscopy (dS), the interactive molecular dynamics project I started three years ago, has earned its sixth award in the last 18 mos! This one as part of the UK’s national Engage Competition. dS aims to open ways for a greater appreciation of the subtle beauty of the invisible atomic world. dS developed from my research into high-performance computational quantum dynamics: by visualising participants as real-time energy fields, it allows you to step into a real-time, interactive and immersive atomic simulation, where movement generates sound and image. dS has formed a major attraction at cultural and educational settings within the UK and internationally, elegantly merging research in science, technology, high-performance computing, and art to all sorts of people.

dS owes this latest success to the support it has received from number of partners, including EPSRC, the Royal Society, the Royal Society of ChemistryNVIDIAArts Council EnglandStanford University, the University of Bristol, the University of the West of England, and Watershed.

  1. You have no idea how much I love you for trying to crowd surf in that classical music performance. Freaking love you to death.

  2. I’m going to ditto what Anon said, and not be anonymous. You’re my superhero. Thank you for your inspiration. I would have been crowd-surfing and getting kicked out right alongside you!
    Btw do you have any plans to take dS to Burning Man? What can I do to help get dS there and/or to Houston, TX? I see you went to SXSW a couple years ago. I’ve been to BM but never to SXSW.
