All Possible Paths: Richard Feynman’s Curious Life 20 October 2018 till 3 March 2019, Singapore

All Possible Paths is a collaboration between ArtScience Museum, Nanyang Technological University and Nobel Centre, with key contributions and loans from the Centre for Quantum Technologies, California Institute of Technology and Michelle Feynman.

 

Be inspired by the curiosity that drove Nobel Prize winner Richard Feynman to explore all possible paths in life, leading to many extraordinary discoveries that could impact our future.


The brilliant and multi-faceted life of Nobel Prize winning physicist Richard Feynman is being showcased in a brand new exhibition, curated and produced by ArtScience Museum, in collaboration with Nanyang Technological University and Nobel Museum.

 

All Possible Paths marks the centenary of one of the most influential physicists of the 20th century, Richard Feynman. Feynman was an American theoretical physicist known for his work in quantum mechanics — the basis of modern physics and of many technological advances that now feature in our everyday lives. He received the Nobel Prize in 1965, and his work changed the way physicists think forever.

 

The exhibition uses both art and science, as well as striking contemporary design, to convey the importance and relevance of Feynman’s work for today’s audiences. Discover how Feynman's curious nature and unconventional thinking drove him to explore many paths in life, including art and music. Being exhibited for the first time out of the United States are some of his personal letters, papers, photographs, Feynman’s famous bongo drums, and his own paintings.

At the centre of the exhibition are installations, sculptures and immersive environments created by contemporary artists such as Jun Ong, Frederick De Wilde, Eiji Sumi, ::vtol::, Edward Tufte and others that will take you deeper into Feynman's science through art.

 

Presented in four thematic sections, the show will transport you into the world of one of the world’s most important scientists of modern times, and show how his discoveries have revolutionised our understanding of nature.

All Possible Paths is part of the Feynman Centenary, which is being celebrated around the world this year, with conferences and festivities, including a major scientific conference at NTU called, Richard Feynman at 100 (22-24 October).
