Science and Arts join for the larger good at Jain University’s Saviskara
By: Jain University
Andrews Joy from Christ University, a B.Sc. student, participated in the exhibition with his mates Rose Mary Joseph and Tijo Thomas. They demonstrated the Ruben’s tube, a vintage physics apparatus that displays the relation between soundwaves and sound pressure. “We have tried to create cymatic patterns with our device, experimenting with different frequencies of music. The physical phenomenon thereby becomes a visual phenomenon which is in sync with the theme of the whole exhibition, that is bringing together Science and Arts,” said Andrews.
B.Sc. Forensic Science students from School of Graduate Studies, Jain University, had many stalls in the exhibition depicting the various uses of forensics in daily life. Aparna Varma, a second-year Forensic Science student displayed the very interesting concept of the golden ratio along with her friends Sudharshan Nair and Arpitha. “Golden ratio is the fundamental principle on which things ranging from the Milky Way to the snail shell are constructed. In Forensic Science, it can be used to identify decomposed bodies from air crashes or crimes, where identification using fingerprinting and other common techniques become difficult. The golden ratio of the human bone can be used to identify the person,” explained Aparna.
Arjun B Hargan and Regina Anne George, Forensic Students of School of Graduate Studies, decided to take the road not taken and chose arts to exhibit their ideas. They chose “The Bench” by Richard Rive to enact a finger puppet play based on the short story. “We decided to convey our ideas through the artistic medium because we wanted to do something different. This story tackles one of the burning issues in the world, racism,” said Arjun elucidating the logic behind the decision.
Saviskara was the hub of activities with more than 100 models exhibited and students thronging the stalls to get a closer look at the action. From herbal mosquito repellents to intelligent irrigation systems that benefit the farmers, the exhibition had something which pandered to viewers with different tastes.
