"Small World" by Simon Thomas, anti-matter, At-Bristol, Bristol, Bristol Cathedral, Bristol Cathedral Choir School, cone, glass, Paul Dirac, public art, quantum theory, Reflections, sculpture, Simon Thomas, window shopping.
To quote from the At-Bristol website:
“This striking piece, sponsored by the Institute of Physics, commemorates the work of Paul Dirac, the Nobel Prize winning scientist/mathematician who was born in Bristol.
Paul Dirac is most famous for his contribution to the Quantum theory and his discovery of anti-matter“.
I don’t know anything about quantum theory or anti-matter, but I do like a dramatic cone. The building behind the sculpture is At-Bristol, which has “hundreds of hands-on exhibits to explore, live shows and a Planetarium“. Reflected in the glass you can see the traffic on Anchor Road, Bristol Cathedral Choir School and the twin bell towers of Bristol Cathedral.
