Chemistry Views Interview

I have an Interview in Chemistry Views.  They did not feature a portfolio of Art.  However you can see a corner of “Rube Goldberg abstract” in the headshot.   If you weant to see some of my Materials Science relevant art in person, the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at MIT has purchased a number of pieces, which are on display in the DMSE main office and adjoining offices.


The headshot

By the way, if you or your Department has a strong interest in Soft Matter, Materials Science, or Chemistry and you’d like some terrific office art, I have a number of originals available as well as high quality prints of most of my work.  I am willing to consider Art loans to Academic and Corporate departments that want to live with the art for a while before making a decision.  Scroll down to the contact from at the bottom of this post to inquire.


Here’s a better photo of the painting that I’m holding in the headshot.  It’s called Rube Goldberg abstract and It’s huge!  The overall composition of Rube Goldberg and the geometries of the painting were inspired by many photos of CERN and it’s detectors.  I would walk through the Particle Physics group and past their photos and posters every day on my way to my own lab (Materials Characterization) when I worked at Tufts University.  There are pieces that are more Materials Science and Chemistry and Soft Matter inspired below Rube Goldberg.
