Evelina Domnitch and Dmitry Gelfand

Guest Artists 2016

Dmitry Gelfand (b.1974, St. Petersburg, Russia) and Evelina Domnitch (b. 1972, Minsk, Belarus) create sensory immersion environments that merge physics, chemistry and computer science with uncanny philosophical practices. Current findings, particularly regarding wave phenomena, are employed by the artists to investigate questions of perception and perpetuity. Such investigations are salient because the scientific picture of the world, which serves as the basis for contemporary thought, still cannot encompass the unrecordable workings of consciousness.

In 2016, the duo visited CERN as part of the Guest Artist programme. They visited the ATLAS Experiment, the CLOUD Experiment, among others. They also gave a lecture about their work for the CERN community. Their work Force Field, 2015 was exhibited in the exhibition No Such Thing As Gravity at FACT Liverpool in 2016.
