This exhibition explores the work of Alyce Simon and Eva Lee, female artist-scientists who have created experimental works of art. Each artist has taken her talents and, through interdisciplinary partnerships with the scientific community, harnessed light to create wholly original pieces. 

Alyce Simon (1925–2011) created radical works of art with a particle accelerator, or “atom smasher,” which produces complex fractal patterns on plastic due to the alteration of the material’s molecular structure when exposed to nuclear radiation. This process, called irradiation, results in Simon’s works that harness light to illuminate patterns that resemble leafless trees, human lungs, and lightning strikes. 

Eva Lee (b. 1965) also uses science and projected light to create her work. Lee is a constant collaborator with scientists, particularly neuroscientists. She develops new worlds in her digital animation videos, ranging from the far reaches of the world to the spaces between subatomic particles. Lee challenges ideas of perception, questioning what could exist beyond what our eyes can see.

This exhibition was organized by the Louisiana Art & Science Museum and was curated entirely from its collection.

LASM is currently open Thursdays and Fridays from 9:30 AM to 2 PM and Saturdays from 9:30 AM to 5 PM. Click here for up-to-date information on admissions and hours.
