What if you could see, every choice, every dream, every possible outcome of your Life?
Does CERN hold the key to our dreams? Because on the 10th Dimension, we can be anything we want to be.
Niamh Shaw & Úna Kavanagh present ‘That’s About The Size Of It’, a part-lecture, part-biographical, interactive, Science Art visual performance piece about Niamh’s ‘What If?’ moments of her life, CERN, String Theory & Dimensions, to explore our existence, our life’s work and the effect of choice, chance and coincidence on our life journey.
A Show In A Bag production, ‘That’s About The Size Of It’ has been created through the support of The Arts Council of Ireland, Dublin City Council and Arts@CERN and is part of Dublin City of Science 2012 official programme of Public Engagement events.
“…..The audience leaves with something new: a rational understanding of the God particle….Shaw and co-creator Úna Kavanagh stay true to atomic principles..” The Irish Times
“..Shaw is passionate about her subject…and does a beautiful job of poignantly, and yes, scientifically, exploring her own life, which in turn invites us to explore the roads we ourselves have not taken.” ITM
