Superposition: physicists and artists in conversation

A seemingly never ending task....

It is wonderful to see this image of the blue discs, they are beautiful. So now onto green (not your favourite colour I know!) and then orange, red..... 

I have underestimated the work involved in creating this piece. I knew it would be incredibly labour-intensive, but had not realised that you were working 7 days a week and often from 8 in the morning until 9 at night! What an extraordinary commitment. 

Is this your most labour-instensive work to date? It is interesting to reflect back on your previous projects and think about the ongoing, repetitive tasks involved in their creation. So often - like this work - the tasks relate to crafts traditionally associated with women's work: crochet, knitting, sewing. I am thinking here of 'Entrap/Conceal' (2011) made from intricate crotchet cotton and glass beads or 'Touch (Blanket)' (2010) created from knitted strands of a hypothermia blanket. Perhaps the most significant of these works is 'Rope' - a series of knitted rope begun in 2001 which continues to grow.....
