by Eric William Carroll

Eric William Carroll examines the landscape and material culture of science by exploring archives and institutions that attempt to represent the smallest and largest things known to humankind. Meet the US artist as he discusses his interdisciplinary work, bringing together photography, science and nature. For the past five years, USA-based Eric William Carroll has been photographing the aesthetics, archives, and material culture of science. His projects are driven equally by an outsider’s curiosity and a insider’s desire for comprehension. Through his photography, performances, and installations, Carroll attempts to humanise the discipline of science by showcasing narratives of failure, humour, and human error. His talk will showcase his “Standard Stars” project about one of the largest glass-plate astronomical photographic archives and his recent work on neutrino and dark matter experiments.
