Lab Café Special for the Railway Arts Festival - "The View of the World from Theoretical Physics"

2015-11-13 (Fri) 19:00 - 21:00

In an era which movement and information around the world such as railways, flight technology, videos, cameras, and the internet have become quite familiar to us, there is still so much in this world that we have yet to discover. Even in natural phenomena and cosmic events that we can see with our eyes, there are thought to exist universal laws that are not subject to human interpretation, such as theoretical models, mathematics, and mathematical expressions. Together with researchers who love railways and theoretical physics, we'll focus on topics such as the view from a train window and the world of science fiction, while having a discussion on the aspects and spatiotemporal variation of movement in the future through various simulations and our own imagination.

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.
