In Nu: Of Flowers and Supernovae

The “In Nu: Of Flowers and Supernovae” project bridges the wonders and poetics of flowers and supernovae into a project that reflects the fuzzy boundaries between the arts and the sciences. Visitors to this completely virtual exhibition can click into the exhibition using their mobile devices and turn the Rolex Center at the EPFL into a site of three-dimensional fields of exotic flowers and vegetation, or experience dizzying galaxies of orbiting internet ephemera. Created as a musical overture to the exhibition, visitors can click on animated figures of performers in motion and listen to a wide range of variations without ever hearing the theme.
