This article continues the series of postings in this blog on the results of artistic work by high-school students of three schools in Venice (out of five who took part initially) that participate in a contest and exposition connected to the initiative "Art and Science across Italy", an initiative of the network CREATIONS, funded by the Horizon 2020 programme of the EU.
The AMVA4NewPhysics network is sponsoring and directing the artistic production in Venice, which has taken place at Liceo Stefanini, Liceo Foscarini, and Liceo Benedetti, involving over seventy 3rd and 4th year students. The production has ended this month, and following a pre-selection of the best works, an exposition will take place during the week of July 5th-12th at the Palazzo del Casinò of the Lido of Venice, in conjunction with the international EPS conference in high-energy physics.
Finally, at 9PM on July 8th, at the Sala Perla of the Casino of Venice, the best artworks will be given prizes in the presence of the Director General of CERN, dr. Fabiola Gianotti. The prizes are offered by the AMVA4NewPhysics network.
In this post I have collected pictures of the artworks produced at Liceo "Marco Foscarini". Given the large throughput I can only briefly mention the authors of the works and their title, leaving aside comments and details - but if you are curious about any one of these paintings and sculptures, please ask and I will answer in the comments thread. Also, each work is being published individually in the AMVA4NewPhysics network blog - but it may take a while to get them all out there.
Alice Giambin, Matteo Quaglio, and Olga Pintor are the authors of "RiveliAMO" (we reveal), a composition in wood and plastic sticks.
Sara Carletti authored "Il piacere della scoperta" (the pleasure of discovery), a sculpture made with plastic net and flowers.
Antonio Perri, Isabella Furlan, and Elisa di Paola produced a unnamed sculpture made with wood and copper wire showing CERN and the LHC.
Alexandra Cieol Pelizza painted "Il tutto e l'uno" (the whole and the one) and wrote a poem to accompany it (the poem will be translated and shown in the network blog).
Lilian Mendici and Denise Patrizi composed "L'universo tra le dita" (the universe between my fingers) with iron wire.
Alice Sanguin, Francesco Barbato, and Asia Colmagro produced "The garbage Particle accelerator" with plastic materials.
Chiara Cattelan and Lorenzo Banchieri painted and composed "Canvas installation" with two canvases and mixed technique.
Chiara Chiapatti, Micol Zhu, and Ludovica Violato produced "Verso il bosone e oltre" (toward the boson and beyond), a telescope to view images of event collisions.
Vittoria Torresin painted a unnamed work with fluorescent paints.
And finally, Martina Ciampi and Elena Murer composed "The Higgs boson's symphony", a video with sound interpretation of physics histograms. I will upload it in the next post as this one has gotten too heavy...
