Invisible Domain Original Works

Up quarks, down quarks,muons, gluons, antiprotons… What does it all mean? These are very much a part of our world but they are too small to be seen. Understanding how the physics of our universe really works on a microcosmic and macrocosmic scale is a critical next step for science.

Note: This work was prepared during an faculty fellowship at the Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute (HEMI) in collaboration with the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA).

Laser Lattice 3

30” x 50”. Digital on aluminum. Laser Lattice 1 was created during a fellowship at the Johns Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute. The artwork explores how light travels through lattices of molecules, like glass.

Polymeria 2

30” x 50”. Digital on aluminum. Polymeria was created during a fellowship at the Johns Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute. The artwork explores what happens to sticky polymers, at a molecular level, when two adhered surfaces are separated.

Melting point 3

30” x 50”. Digital on aluminum. Melting Point 3 was created during a fellowship at the Johns Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute. The artwork is about what happens at a molecular level when a solid changes phase into a liquid. Researchers at HEMI study the chemistry of changes like this, which can happen in an instant.

Laser Lattice 1

3” x 3” x 3”. Rhodium-plated brass (includes laser) Laser Lattice is a three-dimensional work that was created during a fellowship at the Johns Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute. The artwork is about how light travels through lattices of molecules, like glass. The model was created from a 3D model, 3D printed, and then cast in rhodium-plated brass using a process similar to the lost wax technique. For the greatest effect, it is useful to suspend a laser and point it at the sculpture. Even the smallest movement will cause the laser light to reflect off the sculpture in countless directions.

Laser Lattice 4

50” x 30”. Digital on aluminum. Laser Lattice 4 was created during a fellowship at the Johns Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute. The artwork is about how light travels through lattices of molecules, like glass.
