We are excited to announce that Prof. Christopher Sloan will be joining HEMI as our 2019 HEMI/MICA Extreme Arts Program Artist-in-Residence. Sloan has years of experience producing works that translate complex science to immediately intelligible and visually striking works of visual art. He currently teaches both at MICA and at the Academy of Art, University of San Francisco.
As part of his residency, he 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 plans to cast these models in rhodium plated brass to create physical manifestations of these invisible worlds.
The HEMI/MICA Extreme Arts Program is an initiative that brings faculty and students from both institutions together to explore unique perspectives on extreme events. The program aims to encourage collaboration among artists and researchers to examine data, interpret outcomes, and translate results from extreme events in new ways. It is our hope that this dialogue will create a stronger community through a shared sense of curiosity and exploration.
