An Artist’s Atom

The author discusses his ongoing artwork visualized with the help of a graphics computer. Because quantum physics is mathematical and non-pictorial, most people find it difficult to understand how the atom’s electron structure works. The artist’s purpose is to develop an architecture for the atom, a model appealing to the visual mind. Through his artwork he attempts to aid in the visualization of the building block of matter, the atom.
