Created between 2014 and 2017 by the renowned artist Julie Bourgeois, through close collaboration with the INT, this original piece is composed entirely from physics visualizations. The gold-leaf displays a Cerenkov ring from the SNO detector, the red-greens-yellows are an event display from the ICE-CUBE array, the dark-blue radial lines within a ring are a projection of an event at RHIC, the strings (glued to the back) display cosmic-ray tracks, and toward the bottom is a space-time lattice image from lattice QCD calculations.
Julie Bourgeois is a truly brilliant artist, known for her avant-garde artworks, with a deep appreciation for science and the connections between science and art. Julie resides in Montreal, Canada.
The (challenging) installation was done by Artech of Seattle (who made it look easy!).
