About the Talk :

Artist Paul Malone takes you on a unique and controversial tour of the Universe. Originally devised to introduce artists and designers to the wide range of forms inherent in plasma structures, this talk follows contemporary speculations into the role that electro-dynamics play in forming the objects that we see in modern astronomy. Otherwise known as 'Electric Universe' theory or 'Plasma Cosmology', it draws from publications by members of the IEEE and others and traces the history of the study of electricity in Space from Birkeland through Langmuir and Jeugens to today's advocates.

It acknowledges that these views represent a departure from the 'Standard Model' of the Universe but recognises the aspiration of its adherents to re-position astronomy on a more empirical and pragmatic footing. In EU theory most of the objects we see in Space have direct counterparts in the laboratory, common industrial processes and even the domestic kitchen.

Paul Malone studied sculpture at Reading University and the Royal College of Art and has since exhibited extensively in the UK and Europe. His studio is based at the Art in Perpetuity Trust in Deptford, London and his current work explores alternative, lost and forgotten scientific theories. Website : www.a2arts.co.uk/malone
