In an effort to soften the vast expanses of concrete in Bloomberg we wish to hold a contest.
We invite submissions of visually striking art works derived either from course work or research relevant to the main branches of study within the department: Particle Physics, Condensed Matter/Plasma Physics, and Astronomy.
The work will be judged at three levels, Undergraduate, Graduate and Postdoctorial/Research Scientist. First, second and third place prizes will be awarded at each level in the form of $100, $75, and $50 gift cards.
Your submission should include a description of the physical principle or investigation from which the artwork was derived. Suggestions for display in terms of size, location, orientation, media, etc, should also be included.
Submissions will be judged on artistic merit, relevance to the field, relevance to society, innovation and intangible coolness.
The deadline is 31 March 2017. Winners will be announced at the Spring Physics Fair Saturday 29 April 2017.
Submissions are limited to one per person or team. Awards will be made per submission. Team members are ineligible for single person submissions.
Looking forward to great submissions from great students and great researchers!!!
