The latest episode of Physics World Weekly includes an interview with the Irish artist and filmmaker Grace Weir. She is the artist behind Time Tries All Things, a two-screen video installation exploring different conceptions of time; scientific, philosophical and cinematic. Weir is in conversation with Physics World editor Matin Durrani about her inspiration for the work and why she believes that artists and scientists grapple with some of the same big questions about the nature of time.
Later in the podcast, a selection of journalists discuss some of the research highlights published this week on this website. Of particular note, Susan Curtis discusses a breakthrough in an intriguing field of research ­– the idea of creating analogues of black hole systems here on Earth. She’s describes the back story to the “milestone” experiment on the journey towards seeing the spontaneous emission of Hawking radiation from a lab-based analogue.
