The brilliant and multi-faceted life of Nobel Prize winning physicist Richard Feynman is being showcased in a brand new exhibition, curated and produced by ArtScience Museum, in collaboration with Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) and the Nobel Museum in Sweden, with support from the Centre for Quantum Technologies (CQT) at the National University of Singapore.
All Possible Paths marks the centenary of one of the most influential physicists of the 20th century, Richard Feynman. Feynman was an American theoretical physicist known for his work in quantum mechanics — the basis of modern physics and of many technological advances that now feature in our everyday lives. Feynman received the Nobel Prize in 1965, and his work changed the way physicists think forever.
All Possible Paths uses both art and science, as well as striking contemporary design, to convey the importance and relevance of Feynman’s work for today’s audiences. The exhibition shows how Feynman's curious nature and unconventional thinking drove him to explore many paths in life, including art and music. It includes personal letters, papers, photographs, Feynman’s famous bongo drums and his own paintings, which are being exhibited outside of the United States for the first time.
At the centre of the exhibitions are installations, sculptures and immersive environments created by contemporary artists such as Jun Ong, Frederick De Wilde, Eiji Sumi, ::vtol::, Edward Tufte and others, which take visitors deeper into Feynman's science through art.
Presented in four thematic sections, the show transports visitors into the world of one of the most important scientists of modern times, and shows how his discoveries have revolutionised our understanding of nature.
All Possible Paths is part of the Feynman Centenary, which is being celebrated around the world this year, with conferences and festivities, including a major scientific conference at NTU called, Richard Feynman at 100 (22-24 October).
