Review: Super K Sonic Booooum @ Shunt

SonicBoom-005474.jpg Ladies and Gentlemen, please keep your hands and feet inside the ride and remain seated until the lecture has come to a complete standstill, for a little piece of Japan’s Super-Kamiokande has landed in the Shunt Vaults to tantalise your senses in their final week. Designer Nelly Ben Hayoun and an incredibly patient “Doctor Ryan” are offering a whistlestop boat tour of their Kubrick-esque installation which tells you Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Particle Physics (But Were Afraid to Ask). You might think it’s the scandalously cheap wine, but that really is a visual version of a sonic boom rippling across a subterranean lake, as navigators from Queen Mary University of London and Imperial College London try and unravel the secrets of the universe.

And don’t forget your passport for this subatomic adventure. No, seriously.

At Shunt Lounge, 4-7th and 11-14th November, SHUNT Lounge. £5 (Wed/Thurs) and £10 (Fri/Sat)
