Visualizing Experimental Science Short Film Program
This program pairs science-themed experimental cinema with scientific educational films from the Indiana University Libraries Moving Image Archive.
The films' dreamy, surreal, and sometimes startling responses to scientific progress and practices attempt to bridge a commonly perceived gap between the fields: can science be “art”? Films include Barbara Hammer's haunting X-ray film Sanctus (1990), Ruth Jarman and Joe Gerhardt's sonically lush 20 Hz (2011), and educational films such as Microscopic Wonders in Water (1953) and The Science of Musical Sounds (1964).
