Quantum art: sculpting the sublime

Julian Voss-Andreae is a quantum physicist turned sculptor. While his art is largely representative, watching the clip I was reminded of how the visual arts are making contributions to science.

If the brain isn't interested in the world as it is, but in a world that makes sense, the arts and distributed computing are busily taking advantage of that process. In recent years, innovative projects from the Allosphere to the Zooniverse mark up the world in human readable code, and make it available to our senses in a way that can be interpreted by our bodies as meaning - a protein here, new worlds there.
