Bubble Chamber 1, by Lylie Fisher

Bubble Chamber 1, by Lylie Fisher

We had an interesting HEFTI public lecture that combined physics with art this week.    First Prof. Richard Lander gave a brief overview of the physics of bubble chamber experiments, and then artist Lylie Fisher displayed her series of bubble chamber paintings and discussed her inspiration for the work. This was the wolrd premiere public viewing of this series of paintings.  The next public viewing will be at Stanford on March 1, to be followed by visits to CERN and Fermilab.
