Quantum Physics Visualized

I wish that Julian Voss-Andreae had made some of these sculptures when I was in school. While we can't really claim that they represent quantum physics concepts accurately, they still would've made reading about Bosons and Fermions more pleasant.


Julian left his quantum physics research path, but he certainly carried knowledge and inspiration from it over into his art career. These sculptures are intended to portray some incredible quantum physics ideas for which there are "no consistent mental images." That craziness aside, the sculptures are lovely eye-candy based on artistic merit alone. [Julian Voss-Andreae via Boing Boing]



Though I imagined a boson as being ‘stringy’ I don’t think it would be quite so intricate. Pretty, but it doesn’t fit into my idea of the sub-atomic realm. I will continue to hope for an artist to bring the world of’ infinitely small’ to life in sculpture, the way Brian Green brings it to life with words. #quantumsculptures
