CosmoCaixa – ‘Mirrors: in and out of reality’
1st October 2019 - 3rd January 20202,50€
Running since April, CosmoCaixa in Barcelona is hosting an exhibition that explores the nature of reality, past and present, through mirrors.
‘Mirrors: in and out of reality’ is the name of the exhibition that focuses on the role of these objects in various areas of science, culture, and life in general.
According to CosmoCaixa’s head of science Jordi Portabella the exhibition is ‘unprecedented’ in how it can explain the laws of mathematics and physics just through mirrors.
Running until January 2020, ‘Mirrors: in and out of reality’ is split into two parts: one explaining the laws of reflection, and another related to mirrors and light.
The exhibition was overseen by the Mathematics Museum and the Institute of Photonic Science, with help from the Virgo project, which has loaned a valuable mirror from its gravitational wave observatory in Pisa.
