Venturing forth from where Professor Jim Al Khalili’s ‘Shock and Awe’ (BBC) left off, Deptford based
artist Paul Malone takes you on a unique and controversial tour of the Universe. Originally devised
to introduce artists and designers to the wide range of forms inherent in plasma structures, this talk
follows contemporary speculations into the role that electro-dynamics play in the morphologies of
objects that we see in modern astronomy.
“From the smallest particle to the largest galactic formation, a web of electrical circuitry
connects and unifies all of nature, organizing galaxies, energizing stars, giving birth to
planets and, on our own world, controlling weather and animating biological organisms.
There are no isolated islands in an electric universe”.
David Talbot and Wallace Thornhill, 2004
