Janet Echelman is an artist who builds some of the most beautiful and permanent outdoor installations seen around the world. When she was first approached to create a permanent structure in Madrid, Spain, she was challenged to create very large structural forms (think skyscraper) using her preferred medium, soft fabric.  In order to tackle the twin challenges of precise shape and gentle movement,  she turned to HPC. Her team created a software that would allow her to extrude the complex net forms of her art and model them with gravity and movement before creating the actual piece. 

See her full story and #TEDTalk here: http://www.adaptivecomputing.com/blog-hpc/hpc-matters-in-art/ 
Janet Echelman is probably not a name many would recognize in HPC circles. She isn’t a research scientist or a HPC advocate. She is an artist.

I love her work. The materials she uses are fascinating.

Waterfall at the ORNL Visitor Center

This artificial waterfall provides aeration needed to support the ecosystem of the pond next to the Oak Ridge National Laboratory Visitor Center. In the background and surrounding the pond are a variety of native plants.

+Kenneth Read, since leaving la Suiça, might Oak Ridge be where you're working?
(curious 'cause I know quite a few tech types in Knoxville..)

Those colours can't be real, can they!?  The experimentalists would be over stimulated :)

Drone Fly-through of the CERN ALICE Experiment Site

Check out this impressive fly-through of our experimental site by drone! Fly from the control-room at the surface down the 60 m shaft for close-up views of the +ALICE Experiment .

How to Make Quark Soup

The Quark Gluon Plasma is the hottest matter yet observed (250,000x hotter than the center of the sun) and the most ideally flowing fluid yet observed.

SC14 understands why HPC matters

A beautiful promo explains in simple terms just why HPC matters.
"High performance computing is solving some of the hardest problems in the world. But it's also at your local supermarket, under the hood of your car, and steering your investments....  It's finding signals in the noise."

#Edison  electrifies scientific supercomputing as the new DOE flagship supercomputer at +NERSC at +Berkeley Lab. Early results from acceptance tests explore the fate of sequestered CO2....
 
1 day 'til Thomas Edison's bday! 

Here's a look at how +Berkeley Lab researchers are using  #Edison at +NERSC  to model the effects of burying CO2 deep underground. This info will help us understand how much we can rely on geologic sequestration as a means of reducing greenhouse gas emissions, which cause #climatechange.
