Science + Art = The Work of Dawn Meson

Found this today on good old Cosmic Variance.

From the artist’s statement:

What does the quantum world look like?

My work is an attempt to paint the invisible. This series addresses the margins of our scientific understanding: the interactions I depict are theoretically understood but cannot be seen directly. These paintings explore the tiny Quantum phenomena that pervade our everyday world. Using color, translucency, textures and shape as symbols, I hint at the rich complexity and mystery in the subatomic realm.


These paintings, inspired by my decidedly non-mathematic interpretations of both quantum observations and theory, celebrate the role of visualization and imagination in scientific progress.

I wonder if Meson is her real last name?
