Interphases and Grains

Piece description from the artist

Interphases and Grains is a sort of "artist's diagram". It performs quite a bit of the real work of diagramming a scientific phenomenon. Crystallites are depicted as colored (dense) areas that stack up upon one another. There are long squiggly lines and folded patterns sticking out of the "crystallite" areas, suggesting polymers and the chain folding conformational transition. The stippling surrounding everything suggests a complex fluid environment of solvent plus additives to aid and control structure formation. It is an "artist's diagram" because there are numerous aesthetic and creative choices made that do not follow the tacit rules of scientific diagramming and illustration. The result is a drawing that is illustrative of the scientific concepts yet evocative of the mystery and thrill of exploring the weirdness of the microscale and nanoscale. Art.
