Ned Kahn: Portfolio

El portafolio de Ned Kahn que mezcla la ciencia y el arte:

The confluence of science and art has fascinated me throughout my career. For the last fifteen years, I have developed a body of work inspired by atmospheric physics, geology, astronomy and fluid motion. I strive to create artworks that enable viewers to observe and interact with natural processes. I am less interested in creating an alternative reality than I am in capturing, through my art, the mysteriousness of the world around us.

My artworks frequently incorporate flowing water, fog, sand and light to create complex and continually changing systems. Many of these works can be seen as "observatories" in that they frame and enhance our perception of natural phenomena. I am intrigued with the way patterns can emerge when things flow. These patterns are not static objects, they are patterns of behavior - recurring themes in nature.

Cloud Rings - Exploratorium, San Francisco, California. 1993

Originally developed as a prototype for a proposal for the airport terminal in Providence, Rhode Island, this devise lets viewers create a large ring of fog that rises up to the ceiling of the museum. In the Providence Airport proposal, six-foot diameter rings were to rise out of 180-foot long pool of fog and billow up 50 feet into the central atrium. The artwork is intended to suggest the wonder of flying through the clouds.
