“Eye On” is a film series focusing on the increasingly convergent worlds of science, technology and art. In this episode, we explore how the evolution of technology brought about the 2016 detection of the gravitational wave, as well as the rise of digital photography, and how that has affected artists like New York photographer David Godlis.
Featured in this film is IBM Fellow Emeritus Richard Garwin, whose contributions to the detection of gravitational waves and other breakthroughs earned him a 2016 Presidential Medal of Freedom. The film focuses on his relentless pursuit of Joe Weber’s questionable claims to the detection of gravitational waves.
