The Universe of Alexander Calder with Dara Ó Briain
Comedian and Theoretical Physics graduate Dara Ó Briain talks about his love of the cosmos and its connection with Alexander Calder’s mobiles. Calder’s work created a sensation in the 1930 when he took sculpture, liberated it and set it in motion.
Calder’s work has fascinated many, most famously Albert Einstein who reportedly stood mesmerised in front of A Universe 1934 for its entire forty–minute cycle. Ó Briain explores how Calder’s ground-breaking work is still important today.
