Lab Café Chi-Deli - Where Views Cross: An Encounter Between a Physicist and a Poet

2016-3-27 (Sun) 16:00 - 18:00

Chi-Deli is a talk program in which guests from different fields of expertise come together to  "deliver" learning to the general public. This time, we have invited HASHIMOTO Koji, a physicist who challenges the 10th dimension from the viewpoint of the superstring theory, and TANIGAWA Shuntaro, a poet who produces pieces that lead readers to a brand new world. Where do these two stand, and what kind of world do they see? We'll pursue these two world views.


TANIGAWA Shuntaro (Poet), TAKAHASHI Koji (Theoretical physicist/Professor, Graduate School of Science, Osaka University)

What is Lab Café?

A major program instituted at Art Area B1, "Lab Café" is designed and implemented by the Center for the Study of Communication-Design. Lab Café is an interactive program in which participants have wide-ranging discussions on a variety of topics. The program aims to make the station a communication space in the arts and academia by taking up various themes in philosophy, art, science and technology and providing the general public with chances to be exposed to expertise on those topics.

What is Art Area B1?

The concourse of the first basement of Naniwabashi Station was set up as Art Area B1 when the Keihan Electric Railway's Nakanoshima Line was opened on October 19, 2008. Since then, the project has aimed to make the station a center of artistic communication.
