Linking theoretical physics with cultural sciences
Film project “Sciddle – The Science Riddle”
“Sciddle – The Science Riddle” is a ludic film project and a card game, where basic theoretical concepts are clarified by the physicists in a puzzle-like way. The project leads to the development of an outreach playful video format and a card game for sciences and humanities, which may be used in a myriad of other scenarios. My roles involve the initiation, management, and coordination of a team of film producers, cinematographers, illustrators, and physicists.
While science is a closed book to many, it’s a game to others. In Sciddle, science becomes a game to all. Active researchers are given 30 seconds to explain central terms of their field in everyday language. Their explanations are brought to life by animations, helping the viewers to take part in Sciddle; racing against the clock to guess the scientific terms. With every word explained, the book of science is opened further, revealing its hidden pleasures.
