This work, “Dark Matters,” is a concept/sculpture by Jim Jenkins, 2017 Fermilab artist-in-residence. The center of the sculpture is a lead-glass block from the electromagnetic calorimeter of Fermilab experiment E-760/E-835 (charmonium spectroscopy). This picture was taken after a performance of “Quatuor pour la Fin du Temps” by Olivier Messiaen in Ramsey Auditorium. The sculpture was positioned behind the performers on the auditorium stage.
A photographer appreciates a fellow artist’s work: This photographic detail of “Phage,” a Lichtenberg figure sculpture by Todd Johnson, was taken by Giulio Stancari. These Lichtenberg sculptures by Johnson are also known as shockfossils. You can see Johnson’s and other Fermilab staff’s artwork in the Fermilab Art Gallery.
