A glass sculpture drawing inspiration from the wonders of science has been unveiled in Mile End.
The work, at Queen Mary University of London’s school of physics and astronomy, consists of seven spheres, each embedded with complex structures magnified by the natural lens of its rounded shape.
It will remain on permanent display in the foyer of the G.O. Jones building in Mile End Road.
East London artist Livvy Fink drew on ideas around the planets, particle physics and string theory in the work.
“I was intrigued by the similarities and connections that run through the disparate-seeming scales of the macro and the micro in both physics and astronomy: the sense of wonder both provoke,” she said.
