Shoot Protons and Tickle Electrons, Vattenhallen Science Center, Lund, Sweden
This project was commissioned by the Vattenhallen Science Center, in collaboration with Stanley J. Micklavzina, MS, and in conjunction with ESS, Lund University Physics, and MAX IV Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory.
The Shoot Protons and Tickle Electrons (Skjuta Protoner och Kittla Elektroner) exhibit educates the public about the science involved in the range of experiments conducted at the MAX IV facility and their benefits to everyday life. Our commission was to create an interactive installation that allows the public to experience the effects of various wavelengths of light. We explored the interplay between art and science, and how we might use this relationship to illustrate the concepts for visitors to the Science Center. The result is Ljus Ger Färg/Light Gives Color, a layered piece I created that reveals different colors and imagery when exposed to different wavelengths. It is part of the permanent collection.

These photos show the piece in progress and show examples of how various colors and wavelengths of light highlight different aspects of the painting.
