Awake in Reciprocal Space – Original ink Drawing

$ 250.00

Original archival ink drawing, 8″ h x 10″ w  on acid free paper.  Signed on front.

As a Materials Scientist by training I’ve spent a good bit of time in reciprocal space. When I was doing a lot of diffraction and scattering combined with Fourier transform spectroscopies I would sometimes go to sleep with my head still in Reciprocal Space and wake disoriented from my night long adventures in dataland. This piece is partly a reference to those experiences.

Original archival ink drawing, 8″ h x 10″ w  on acid free paper.  Signed on front.

Ships unmatted, sandwiched between protective foam core sheets.

Original paintings and drawings from my shop ship fully insured with a typical turnaround time of roughly 10 business days (less for small items).  Once they’re with the shipper, actual transit times vary by destination.

 

I will gladly exchange or refund work that you do not like if notified within 30 days of receipt.  Customer pays the shipping on returns and/or exchanges.  Most people like them better in person.

Prints are also available 

 

Notes:

Sakura Micron Pigma felt tip ultrafine pen and Derwent linemaker fine line pens with archival pigment inks on acid free Strathmore series 400 drawing paper. Hand drawn with no computer involvement.

Templates and a compass were used in combination with freehand ultrafine details to create a unique aesthetic of interacting patterns, different length scales, and concentric circles, intersecting circles, embedded circles and lots of circles. 8×10 inches

By far the funniest and weirdest personal romp through reciprocal space was in a favorite comic from MIT days “The Legend of Fred” by Jim Brendt. One of the main characters became trapped in reciprocal space right about the time I started taking higher level classes using the same concept. The zaniness of the comic reflected the way many of us felt about classes like 3.13.
