Opening this week is a mind-expanding exhibition at the Hayward Gallery in London. Titled An Alternative Guide to the Universe this venue-filling extravaganza features work by visionary outsiders in art, science, engineering, photography and architecture. IFF director Margaret Wertheim has curated the section on outsider physics, showcasing diagrams and animations by James Carter – hero of her book Physics on the Fringe – and elaborate models of subatomic particles by newly discovered, Pasadena-based, “quantum geometry” theorist Philip Blackmarr. Carter and Blackmarr appear in the Beautiful Theories part of the exhibition. Accompanying the show is a catalog to which Margaret has contributed an essay.
