Diffracting around – original ink drawing

$ 90.00

Original archival ink drawing, 4″ h x 6″ w  on acid free paper.  Signed on front.

Ships free in the USA (or pick it up in Boston).

This little drawing captures several levels of diffraction and waves through art – the lovely bits of interference from overlapping waves, the patterns of rings generated by a sample of tiny crystallites, even a bit of the orientation information in the patterns of broken and attenuated intensity within rings.

Notes:

I’ve spent many hours staring at diffraction rings. There was a point when the patterns of ring spacing and geometry would start to “read” like words, and I could guess the structures I was measuring before completing the analysis. It’s a weird sensation. I find diffraction-like patterns of rings oddly beautiful, like little allusive fourier transformed poems about molecules.

I’m sure part of this aesthetic is informed by years of seeking the data-rich interpretable patterns in sample preps and analysis (you also have to analyze the bad ones, but starting with the good ones makes the whole exercise a lot more possible.)

This little drawing captures several levels of diffraction and waves through art – the lovely bits of interference from overlapping waves, the patterns of rings generated by a sample of tiny crystallites, even a bit of the orientation information in the patterns of broken and attentuated intensity within rings. It’s Art, not an interpretable pattern. The patterns have multiple origins and also allude to wavefronts – not something you’d get in an experiment with a single beam or radiation source.
