Professor Christopher Sloan of the Maryland Institute College of Art and the Art Academy University in San Francisco will be the 2019 HEMI/MICA Artist in Residence.

During his residency, Prof. Sloan plans to visualize areas invisible to the human eye, specifically those on very small scales, such as that of atoms, molecules and nano-scale structures. Using 3D models to visually represent these invisible spaces, Sloan intends to cast these models in rhodium-plated brass to create physical manifestations of these invisible worlds.

Explorations of the Invisible Domain: Works by Christopher Sloan

Exhibition: March 6 – April 10, 2020

You are cordially invited to the opening reception of Explorations of the Invisible Domain to share Christopher Sloan’s vision of regions far beyond the realm of human vision.

Using Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute (HEMI) research projects as a starting point, Sloan aesthetically probed the nature of atoms and molecules in specific situations at extremely small scales. The result is a series of haunting and surreal landscapes that allow visitors to journey vicariously into this otherwise invisible territory.
