Einstein Year - a year celebrating physics - Visualise
Home » ey in pictures » Visualise


Sound waves made of flames and giant smoke rings were among the stars that took centre stage at a premiere of 'Visualise - the beauty of science' at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff on 6 December 2005.

Visualise combines live experiments with projected images and music to create an awe-inspiring experience that doesn’t rely on words.

The show was launched in celebration of Einstein Year and the Cardiff 2005 centenary, thanks to development funding by the Institute of Physics and NESTA (the National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts), and launch sponsorship by Pfizer.

The full show, created by the Cardiff-based company, science made simple, is intended for theatre, art centre and international festival audiences, and they have plans for an adapted version for schools and special needs groups across the UK and beyond.

The show’s emphasis on vision and sound, rather than on spoken explanations makes it ideal for audiences who do not speak English and for those with special needs.
