Photon (colourless light carrier), by Jan-Henrik Andersen. (Ink on canvas, 42x56")


From* an article by Elizabeth Wade, in Symmetry Magazine, on a gallery of artworks about particle physics. Quoting:

Ultimately, Andersen hopes to have his visualization of particle physics used for educational purposes. "The distance between Fermilab [a particle physics laboratory] and the dinner table is getting larger," he says. "I want to aid communication between a larger audience and physicists, and make this fantastic and beautiful part of our world conceptually available to a broader audience."

Godspeed. -cvj *via Boing Boing.
