Piece description from the artist

Ink on paper (hand drawn, no computer). Archival Prismacolor art markers and sakura pigma micron felt tip ultrafine pens on acid free RENDR coated paper

An artists playful depiction of several attractors . In non-linear physics and mathematics, the various states of a system are sometimes mapped out with paths plotted for how the state of the system can change in parameter space. While the mathematics of non-linear systems can be very hard to understand, these mappings often reveal patterns. One possible pattern is a group of set points for the system, where it is stable. Sometimes all of the paths along which the system can evolve lead to a small number of stable setpoints that seemingly pull in or attract all possible trajectories for the evolution of the system.

About Regina Valluzzi

Waltham, MA

Dr. Regina Valluzzi has an extensive scientific background in nanotechnology and biophysics. She has been a scientist in the chemical industry, a green chemistry researcher, a research professor at the engineering school at Tufts, a start-up founder engaged in technology commercialization, and a start-up and commercialization consultant.

Even during periods of intense activity as a scientist, Dr. Valluzzi has always held a strong interest in the visual arts and in visual information. While she majored in Materials Science at MIT, she also obtained a second degree in music and a minor in visual studies. Visual arts have managed to permeate her technical work; during her Ph.D in Polymer Science and Engineering at UMass Amherst, she completed a thesis that required advanced electron microscopy, image analysis, and theoretical data modeling. These experiences provided the visual insight and information that now influences much of her artwork.

Dr. Valluzzi’s work has been included in private collections across the US, UK, Germany, Canada, Japan, Netherlands, Switzerland, Bulgaria, Dubai and Malta, and in the corporate collection of "Seyfarth Shaw" Boston law offices around Boston. She has a selection of pieces on loan to the MIT Materials Science and Engineering Department as indoor public art. Her accomplishments include having published thirty articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals, having made several scientific patents, having been a subject matter expert for an encyclopedia chapter, and having been invited to speak at science talks across the US, Europe, and Japan.

Her newsletter is a good source of ongoing information:
