  • 'Cosmic Web' Wins in the 2020 Art of Science People's Choice

    By Carol Prusa, MFA

    Cosmic Web (for the Harvard Computers):

    This domed painting with internal light, 60 x 60 x 10 inches, silverpoint and acrylic, names 14 women astronomers, like Henrietta Leavitt, who "mapped the heavens" and contributed knowledge that changed our view of our universe. Biopoetic forms rim the center like embryos at the indifferent stage (neither male or female) and coalesce to form a collaborative web of what is known. The mapping lines of light express desire to understand what we are made of and our location. This painting is offered as homage to the scientists and expresses the overwhelming.
