Julian Voss-Andreae's "Quantum Objects"

Sculptures capture essence of quantum physics

By

Julian Voss-Andreae is a sculptor out of Portland, Oregon. German-born, he studied physics in Berlin, Edinburgh, and Vienna. He received a PhD in physics, having participated in an experiment that demonstrated the wave particle duality in molecules at large scales.

In 2000, he moved to the United States and returned to his passion as an artist, graduating from art school in 2004. He has since begun adapting his sculpture technique as an expression of his scientific background, creating a series of "Quantum Objects" which attempt to visually represent on the large scale the curious behavior that quantum physics demands on the sub-atomic scale.

His sculptures will be on display in the "Worlds Within Worlds" exhibit at the American Center for Physics in College Park, MD, from October 21, 2009 through April 16, 2010. If you're going to be in the Washington, DC, area, it should be an excellent show. The exhibit is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
