MRSEC-Inspired Exhibits at the Exploratorium

Since 2006, members of the University of Chicago MRSEC have visited the Exploratorium and hosted reverse-visits by Exploratorium artists and scientists. The long-term goal is the realization of MRSEC-inspired exhibits on the Exploratorium floor. The picture on the left is of Shawn Lani (formerly, Exploratorium) and Sid Nagel discussing the beautiful and compelling structures made by a vibrated cornstarch/water mixture. This was the prototype for the newly re-worked “Arp Forms” exhibit which is currently on display intermittently on the Exploratorium floor.
