    Students in HUMN 311/GEVA 310 Black Holes and Other Transformations of Energy have their work on exhibit at TRIUMF - Canada's Laboratory for Particle and Nuclear Physics.

    In Fall 2010, they participated in TRIUMF’s Artist in Residence program. During two visits in October, students  met with physicists, toured the laboratory and spent studio time around the facility developing ideas and inspiration for visual arts projects. Through contemporary art in its many forms the narrative of science enters the human story and becomes materially transformed.

    The exhibit runs from December 3 to 17, 2010.

    For more information, please visit TRIUMF.
