Soft Colors from Another Planet

Annie takes home top Science as Art prize at AP Fest 2018!

May 4, 2018

Congrast to Annie for winning 1st place in the Science as Art competition at the 2018 Applied Physics Festival at Harvard!

Her photo shows polystyrene nanospheres in a polycrystalline arrangement that gives rise to iridescent structural color. The image was captured through the eyepiece of a microscope, which is why we see a circular field of view surrounded by darkness, resembling a planet in space. The name of the piece is "Soft Colors from Another Planet", inspired by the album "Soft Sounds from Another Planet" by Japanese Breakfast.
