Where art, design and crystallography converge. ATOMIC radio brings you stories from the long relationship between the arts and the science of X-ray crystallography. X-ray crystallography, which is 100 years old this year, is a science that reveals the invisible, the tiny atomic structures of molecules and crystals – and it has been quietly influencing art and design for decades. Each episode spotlights a different piece of art or design prompted by the science of atoms, featuring interviews with the designer Alexandra Daisy Ginsberg, artist Conrad Shawcross, science writer Georgina Ferry, the X-ray crystallographer Stephen Curry and many more. ATOMIC radio is a part of the Resonance 104.4 FM Science Museum residency and part of the 2014 International Year of Crystallography. It is supported by the Science Museum Art Programme. The series is part of Emily Candela‘s AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Award research between the Royal College of Art and the Science Museum and it’s made by Emily Candela and co-produced by Chris Dixon, with sound design by Emmett Glynn and Sam Conran.
