Curie's Children [glow boys, radon daughters]
- workshop together with Martin Howse
The workshop allows the uninitiated to easily enter into a physical and intuitive relation to nuclear and atomic processes, following simple hands-on experimentation, construction and research. This relation promotes an understanding of the complex issues surrounding contemporary uses of nuclear and atomic technologies, which could inform and help to formulate an artistic response.
As part of the Case Pyhajoki project in 2013, Berger and Howse designed a minimal, low budget geiger radiation detector which is fast and simple to build. The detector serves as an introduction to start a relationship with the complex political, economic and artistic positions orbiting the phenomena of nuclear decay.
