Friday May 17th and 18th
Penn Dixie, Performance 8:30pm
During this two-day event we will watch as dancers enact planetary rotations, evoking the music of spheres as they orbit the sun. Transforming from planets into black holes, dancers will wield parachutes in the style of chinese dragons as these giant masses dance in relation to each other, eventually colliding together, generating a ripple in the fabric of spacetime, which we then detect, billions of years later, in the form of the recently discovered phenomenon of gravitational waves. Waves will then get explored further with the use of LED wristbands and spools of cord to conjure up different kinds of patterns inspired by the electromagnetic spectrum. In the final act, messages will be sent out to interstellar space, as this cast of communicators will have the opportunity to transmit what they deem to be most important about life here on earth.

On Site Pre Show Demo
Hosted by: The Nanosatellite Laboratory
The University at Buffalo Nanosatellite Laboratory or UBNL is a group of undergraduate and graduate students who work with the Air Force Research Lab and NASA to build small satellites from concept to launch. For The Indeterminacy UBNL will bring demos from two of their missions. GLADOS will be demonstrating a star tracker, a camera that uses advanced algorithms to determine which way satellites are pointing. FALCON will have a laser communication demo to show how the satellites will communicate when they are 1000 km apart in space.
