The Art Behind the Science | Neal Hartman

TEDxMatera 2016 - Brand New
16 settembre 2016

This speech starts with the story of a "crying" scientist... the emotions are the very special part of this scientific speech! Artists have been invited to CERN -Ginevra, to discover the art behind the science. We're all touched by art, that's not only entertainment, it's discover and experiment. Listen to this speech to discover that the perceived division between art and science... simply doesn't exist. And to discover some of the most impressive Cameras in the world, that CERN has realised to make very special scientific and artistic movies
