Seeking the Unseen is a body of artwork that celebrates the search for the hidden and unseen. Deep below the surface there is beauty in the old and new, the light and dark, and the known and unknown.
Gina Gibson is a Professor of Graphic Design at Black Hills State University (BHSU) in Spearfish, South Dakota. Gibson, an internationally exhibiting artist and lecturer, became the first-ever Artist-in-Residence (AiR) for the Sanford Underground Research Facility (SURF) in Lead, South Dakota. The deepest underground research laboratory in the United States, SURF reaches a depth of nearly one mile below the surface and houses experiments in dark matter and neutrino physics, biology, geology and engineering including LBNF/DUNE. The Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE), hosted by Fermilab, is an international flagship neutrino experiment and will be installed in the Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility (LBNF). DUNE will comprises state-of-the-art particle detectors: one at Fermilab and one deep underground at Sanford Lab.The success of the inaugural AiR program led to a new partnership between BHSU and SURF and the appointment of Gibson as the Coordinator of the program.
