12 Feb Leonardo Article and Cover features Black Hole
The Black Hole collaboration has been featured on the cover of Leonardo Journal’s Volume 49, Issue 1 out in February of 2016. Included is a write up of the project. I’m honored to have a project I worked on featured in an MIT journal! The installation looks great on the cover. Pick one up!
Here is the abstract: Black (W)hole is an immersive art installation created collaboratively by artists and scientists utilizing data visualization of an extreme mass ratio inspiral (EMRI) and the sonification of its emitted gravitational waves in an experiential work of “artscience” and science education. The sensory-rich environment of the installation engages mind and body, expanding and enriching the participant’s capacity to imagine and wonder about the beauty and meaning of this highly abstract astronomical object, the black hole. The work investigates both historical and current gravitational wave astronomy, illustrating our 21st-century understanding of the cosmos.
