Abstract

The author continues to derive inspiration and new themes for her paintings from recent research in atomic physics. Referring to a conversation with the late physicist Werner Heisenberg, who was among the first to propose the concept of a universal atomic length in respect to quantum physics, she discusses various processes in experimental physics in which this unit can be seen as playing an important role. A diagram illustrates the process of abstraction that led to her visual metaphor. In conclusion, the artist suggests that art can contribute to the understanding of the mysteries of the physical world we live in.
