Connect, Spark, Flow--These are the names of each of the three panels comprising Realms, the digital holographic display created by Austin artist Sally Weber for the Science Mill. She thinks of matter as dense light, which is why finite points of light compose the objects in the panels. Solidity is displayed as translucent in this exhibit as light is manipulated. These images were created using a circular grid modeled from an astrolabe, the first instrument to map the dome of the heavens on a flat surface. Looking into each panel reveals an image that extends far beyond the frame, and infinity seems to fall away below the viewer’s feet!
