As with any new creation, it all starts with an idea: When Fermilab scientists identify a research problem, they conceive a solution, converse with others in their community to develop it further, and then, over months, years or decades, design and build an experiment or a technology that addresses it. The result — new data, a new machine, a new sensor — is a fulfillment of that initial idea and a continuation of the larger mission: to delve into matter, energy, space, and time.
The artists who have submitted their artwork to Be a part of pARTicles 2.0 have interpreted words and data from science onto canvas with oils, watercolors, digital imagery, photos of a mural, shock fossils, woodcuts and LEDs. These artists are from 14 states (Alabama, Arizona, California, Connecticut, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Nevada, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Washington) and 17 countries (Australia, Canada, Denmark, Estonia, Germany, Hungary, India, Italy, Lebanon, Mexico, Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, United Kingdom, United States).
With all these different viewpoints, ages and locations across the globe, what a colorful canvas we have created!
