Frizions: Art emerging from science January 24, 2009

Just yesterday I wrote about the polarised light in the context of how the artificial polarised light causes ecological pollution. However, today while browsing the New Scientist website I came across an article that portrays polarised light as an art tool! NASA scientist and artist Peter Wasilewski creates stunningly beautiful images with polarised light and ice in the process of freezing. And he calls them “frizions”. The article gives details of the process along with the link to a slideshow that showcases some of the magnificent pieces of art produced and to the website of the artists himself. One of the very few examples where art and science meet, it makes for a pleasurable viewing.
