Collage of several overlaying images of particles taken with a Scanning Tunneling Microscope.
The text reads:
"Art and Science
Two diverse landscapes working together, creating one world."
At UND, Nuri Oncel, an assistant professor in Physics and Astrophysics, uses a Scanning Tunneling Microscope (STM) to render images of particles, and even individual atoms. The images are often geometric and distorted in ways that alter the viewer's perception of an object or material.
Seeking a way to share these images with the public, Nuri contacted Betsy Thaden, an art teacher at Red River High School. Students were selected for a unique art project to interpret the computer-rendered imagery into art.
