This one-off installation in the ice wells of the London Canal Museum was an immersive experience. I’m not very good with heights/depths but managed to deal with the 2-level descent by ladder (with obligatory hard hat and strong footwear) to access the underground space, normally closed to the public, for this show, a collaboration between artist Lyndall Phelps and physicist Dr Ben Still.
Commissioned by the Institute of Physics, Covariance is an artistic interpretation of work on the subject of neutrinos taking place at the International Tokai to Kamioka experiment in Japan. I was lucky enough to meet Lyndall between visits who told me that her work, often in collaboration with other disciplines, often influences their work practice, as theirs does hers. My mantra, that everything is connected, is very true here. NB. All photos taken without flash, hence the slight haziness. The shadows on the surrounding circular brick walls were also mesmerising – you’ll have to imagine those as my photos were too blurred.
