In the world of particle physics, scientists work with tiny, invisible particles, tracking their collisions and interactions with one another. But what if you could render them as music? What would these songs of the subatomic sound like? Adam Nadel, Fermilab’s 2018 artist-in-residence, worked with scientists at Fermilab and set out to do just that. Read on to hear his music.

From The Beacon-News, Jan. 24, 2019: Isaac Facio, a textiles specialist at the Art Institute of Chicago, has been selected as Fermilab’s artist-in-residence for 2019. Facio draws on his background in textiles engineering and conservation to approach questions about the universe.

Facio uses woven textiles to recreate the structure of the cosmos from astrophysical data. A textiles conservator at the Art Institute of Chicago, he sees parallels between an artist’s and a scientist’s work. Facio will be the fifth artist in the residency program, which Fermilab started in 2014.

From The Physics Teacher, Aug. 20, 2018: Fermilab 2014-15 artist-in-residence Lindsay Olson and Fermilab scientist Don Lincoln tell the story of how they came to collaborate and generate creative art that can interest the public about some of the most exciting and mind-blowing science.
