I am really excited about an upcoming exhibition called Jiggling Atoms, which is the culmination of a major project between artists and physicists. I've long believed that illustration is a great way to communicate sometimes complex ideas in an attractive and alluring way, so I can't wait to see what the participants have come up with. An exciting programme of events will also accompany the exhibition. Below is the official blurb and some of the works in progress, so read on for a taster of what to expect.

Jiggling Atoms is an art and physics collaboration celebrating what science has come to describe as "the inconceivable nature of nature". Inspired by Nobel laureate Richard Feynman and his wonderful ability to teach physics to non-scientists, teaching was where this project began - all contributing artists attended lectures at Imperial College London, written especially for the project by Malte Oppermann and Jennifer Crouch, with a final lecture by Dr. Ben Still. Exploring a range of particle-physics topics in depth, the artists developed their own take on the subject creating games, images, sculptures, comics and info-graphics for theJiggling Atoms exhibition. With such diverse creative input the exhibition will provide a truly unique visual experience. This teaching based initiative is at the core of Jiggling Atoms' unique spirit.

Jiggling Atoms was conceived by Natalie Kay-Thatcher and is co-curated and organised by Rosie Eveleigh, Jennifer Crouch, Malte Oppermann and Dr. Ben Still. With support from the Science and Technology Facilities Council and The Institute of Physics, Jiggling Atoms seeks to increase the presence of science in the visual arts, opening a channel of science-oriented communication rarely used in this context or with this intensity.
