    Fundamental Research in Cosmoparticle Physics and the Visualisation: Symbiosis of graphics and conceptualisation

    Electronic Visualisation and the Arts (EVA 2014)

    London, UK, 8 - 10 July 2014


    Kristina Mettus and Anna Nazarova


    Cosmoparticle physics is a science, which is varied and multifaceted in ideas and figures. According to the definition to cosmoparticle physics by Maxim Kholpov, Director of Virtual Institute of Astroparticle physics in Paris, 'in the proper combination of the indirect physical, astrophysical and cosmological signatures', cosmoparticle physics allows the study of the theory of everything and the true history of the universe. This science requires accurate calculations, data collection, and its succinct and visual interpretation. Cosmoparticle science brings together macro-scale objects and particle-scale objects, which are not within the physical capability of the eye. There has always been a need to allow intangible and unencompassable objects to be visualised. This tendency has been defined by a human's capacity of thinking abstractedly, which allows visualising the ideas, non-figurative notions or notions that could be described through theorectical means. Communication design serves humanity's needs for cosmoparticle identification.
