From American University, September 6, 2022: Four years ago, artist Shanthi Chandrasekar exhibited at Fermilab which led to a collaboration with Michael Albrow at the American University in Washington, DC. From September 10 – December 11, 2022, Singularities and Infinities will be on display and is a juxtaposition of art and science. Together Shanthi Chandrasekar, an artist trying to capture the intricacies and wonders of the Universe, and Michael Albrow, an experimental physicist and science writer, seek to explain in a few words the science behind the workings of the Universe.

Santa Barbara resident Mark Hirsch was named the 2021 artist for the Fermilab artist-in-residence program. In his upcoming work, he will reimagine and translate the scientific data and discoveries into digital and physical forms that communicate the complexities that are inherent to the work occurring at Fermilab.
