In the past I have worked with designers and illustrators and was struck by how different the two professions were, talking as a naive scientist, but both were adamant they were not artists. So what would an artist be like? As soon as I met Lyndall I knew it would be fun working with her. We immediately started chatting, about what I thought was the most visually impacting area of my research - the detectors. Giant machines designed to image the smallest things in Nature. I knew that Super-Kamiokande would wow, as it does everyone who sees it. Lyndall had a real hunger for understanding every aspect of not only Super-K but all other detector technologies - this was my first homework.
