Roundtable: “From the cosmic web to the ghost particle: a reflection on our Universe from art and science”

How can we get closer to understanding the frontiers of the known universe? And how can art and science engage in dialogue and complement each other? In this round table, DIPC scientists will explain how it is possible to study the universe and its physical laws through underground experiments and simulations on supercomputers by contrasting
their experiences with the artistic process of the painter Patricia Cancelo.

About the speaker

Dr Raúl Angulo is an astronomer and Ikerbasque researcher at the Donostia International Physics Center (DIPC). His career focuses on creating universes on supercomputers to understand the physical laws that give rise to the cosmos around us. He has received a whole host of awards for his research, including a grant from the European Research
Council, and the Wilhelm Bessel Prize of the Humboldt Foundation in Germany.

Patricia Cancelo is a geometric sculptor in iron, a painter who depicts the universe and the place occupied by the human being in it. As a journalist she worked for 12 years in various media, from radio to television. She has been an art gallery director in Barcelona for the last 4 years. She has received numerous national and international awards. Her work can be found in the collections of museums and galleries in various cities and countries, such as
Paris, Ireland, Denmark and Barcelona.

Dr Francesc Monrabal is a researcher at DIPC in the field of experimental neutrino physics. He was trained at the Universities of Valencia and Texas at Arlington. He is currently working on the NEXT experiment at the Canfranc Underground Laboratory, with which they are trying to determine the nature of the neutrino.
