Wunderkammer I

We have created the scientific part of the exhibition “Wunderkammer I” that integrates art and fluid dynamics (see catalog in Danish here and in English here). The exhibition will be on display in fall 2018 and spring 2019 at Esbjerg Art Museum.

Two of the five experimental setups for the Wunderkammer I exhibition and the DTU Physics team. The experiment to explore “Rotating Polygons” is in the front, and the “Drop and Splash Dynamics” visualization setup is in the back. The team is from left to right: Erik Hansen, Anders Andersen, Alexis Duchesne, and Tomas Bohr.

The four experiments on “The Hydraulic Jump”, “The Bathtub Vortex”, “Drop and Splash Dynamics”, and “Rotating Polygons” in action at Esbjerg Art Museum.

The exhibition contained videos based on the experiments created by Barbara Bohr.

In November 2018, we won a place in “Gallery of Fluid Motion” at the American Physical Society Division of Fluid Dynamics annual conference.
