Physics Colloquium: Galactic Searches for Dark Matter http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220413969?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220413969?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS Wednesday, Sep 17
(4:15 p.m. - 5 p.m.)

Louis Strigari (Indiana)

     For nearly a century, more mass has been measured in galaxies than is contained in the visible matter. Through a variety of observations, it has become clear that the dark matter in galaxies is not comprised of known astronomical objects or baryonic matter, and that its identification is certain to reveal a profound connection between astrophysics, cosmology, and fundamental physics. In this talk, I discuss and interpret Galactic searches for dark matter, focusing on how to use astronomical observations to measure the properties of particle dark matter. I discuss how the properties of the Milky Way’s faint satellite galaxies are used to test for exotic properties beyond the standard cold and collisionless dark matter model. I conclude by highlighting how in the next several years we will either confirm the leading theoretical model for dark matter, or there will be a paradigm shift in our view of it.

Satellites by Christopher Blay http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220413035?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220413035?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS Saturday, Aug 23 - Saturday, Sep 20 Location: CentralTrak.

Opening Reception: Saturday, Aug 23, 8 - 10 pm

Location:
CentralTrak
800 Exposition Ave
Dallas, Texas 75226

The Liberian-born artist Christopher Blay, who is currently an artist-in-residence at CentralTrak presents his most recent body of sculptural installation at CentralTrak’s exhibition space opening on August 23. Conceived as an effort to coax reciprocation from a visual art audience, Blay’s exhibition “Satellites” focuses attention on the often one-sidedness of the visual art experience. Performers doing theater have the benefit of a live audience who generate real-time reaction, but visual artists rarely get feedback or immediate responses. Art is a form of communication but that does not guarantee or equate to an audible response back to the artist. As Blay puts it, “I’ve had a few conversations recently that made me think about how our work as artists, and how we communicate with audiences outside the world of art. We put a lot of research and time into making work, so it’s not unreasonable that we have a certain expectation that our audiences reciprocate, but I sometimes wonder if our communication is a closed loop.”

This installation hints at a high-tech world with decidedly low-tech materials. Blay constructs facsimile communication satellite equipment using cheap umbrellas and windshield sunscreens. There is wonderful ingenuity in reinventing these objects, up-cycling their materials into portraits of more fanciful objects. Blay’s past oeuvre includes creating a “spaceship”, a “time machine” as well as a version of Noah’s ark.

Blay is a current artist-in-residence at CentralTrak and was the recipient of the Meadows Museum of Art’s Moss/Chumley Award in 2013, a prize that acknowledges both an exceptional body of work produced as an artist and meaningful and generous involvement in the arts community.

Christopher Blay is a North Texas artist with a B.F.A. in photography from Texas Christian University. He founded the Group f8 photography collective in Fort Worth in 2000 and works primarily as an installation artist, with an eye towards institutional critique. His work incorporates video, sculpture and performance, (notably as Frank Artsmarter and DJ lo rez).

Blay recently received a Fort Worth Public Art commission for the Rosedale/ Evans Avenue neighborhood, to be completed in 2015. Among his other works, The Ark on Noah Street (a NEA funded work in the Historic 10th Street district of Dallas) will be presented at the 2014conference of the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture in Nova Scotia. Other recent projects include Dear House, The Artists Commission at Gray Matters Gallery story projects in Haltom City, Keller, and Southlake, and “Machine Time” at the McKinney Avenue Contemporary.

In 2013, Blay received the SMU Meadows museum’s Moss/Chumley award, given to artists whose works intersect with both the arts and their community. Blay is currently curator of Tarrant County College’s Art Corridor Gallery

ABOUT CENTRALTRAK

CentralTrak, The University of Texas at Dallas Artists Residency, established in 2008, is dedicated to the creation, presentation, and advancement of the contemporary arts.  As a live/work space for eight artists, it serves as a community center in the North Texas area for broad intellectual discourse around the arts.  While the residency promotes artistic experimentation through its support of production, the companion gallery encourages critical engagement in a local urban context through exhibitions and related programs. By building on the forward-thinking academic resources of the School of Arts & Humanities at The University of Texas at Dallas, CentralTrak unites artists from an expansive range of creative disciplines to extend and challenge contemporary notions of artistic practice, creative expression, and the role technology plays in these processes.

 

CentralTrak is supported in part by the generosity of numerous donors and partners from the North Texas area and The University of Texas at Dallas.
