Love these! Artist Kysa Johnson Paints Cosmic Phenomena with Patterns of Subatomic Decay https://hyperallergic.com/391363/painting-cosmic-phenomena-with-patterns-of-subatomic-decay/

"Johnson does not portray the universe as we see it in photographs from the Hubble Telescope, though those pictures are clearly among her points of departure. Rather, she creates her images by building up a palimpsest of subatomic decay patterns: the straight, curvilinear, and spiraling paths of these tiniest of particles, which scientists study using accelerators and electronic detectors. Like Solomon’s ring, these pictures are emblems of constant change. Atoms decay, stars die."
