Corresponding Session:
'This presentation will provide an overview of the art project Aganta Kairos (To Fish the Metaphysical Time). It celebrates the neutrino, the ghost particle, which is considered as a cosmic messenger by scientists, and as a link between people who care about their relationship to the cosmos and question their origins, for the artist. The artwork is based on a performance of celebration and seeks to build a human community crossing different knowledges and interpretations of the universe. This crossing of knowledges is realized during the performance of placing the plaque, held with witnesses, and during subsequent exhibitions. Images, sounds, videos and sculpture testify to the diversity of approach to questioning our origins ranging from traditional western science to ancient shamanism. The sites were selected to cover the globe and, for the South Pole, Mediterranean and Lake Baikal, their connection to ongoing neutrino experiments. In December 2020, a plaque was installed at South Pole IceCube Laboratory, the seventh and final site. Images and video from the South Pole installation will be featured.'
