HEMI research asks fascinating questions about what happens to materials under extreme conditions. Much of HEMI research can’t be perceived without powerful scanning technologies, let alone touched. Touch and perception, however, are both essential to how artists and designers learn and understand the world.
Symmetry & Fracture offers a way to physically connect with the complex research ideas of HEMI labs through hands-on exploration of mineral crystal systems and the grain boundaries of metallic materials.
You are invited to playfully investigate and decide for yourself where or if boundaries lie between art and science.
