Molecular Delirium

Jim Cogswell


In 2009 I completed a mural-scaled painting under the spell of the recent INSAP conference in Venice and a visit to the mosaics of Ravenna. Molecular Delirium responds to an array of scientific images based on astronomical research, in particular, computer models of the complex physics controlling star formation in our galaxy. My paper briefly examines these influences. Also, fundamental to this artwork are the perceptual and philosophical implications of artistically imaging the fragmentary and incomplete, sensations of energy in continuous transformation, and the anxiety and exhilaration of perpetual genesis through which we glimpse the unfathomable infinite.
