View a short video of Spherical Harmonics, exhibited at Boston Sculptors Gallery in May, 2014
Spherical Harmonics, features Hydrogen Atomic Orbitals, an arrangement of thousands of 1" diameter black and red ceramic balls, clustered in patterns, hanging from the gallery walls. Having chanced upon patterns made by hydrogen atoms while conducting a Google search on Quantum Mechanics, Bernard offers the viewer a simple and tangible way of visualizing the behavior of electrons in matter, following an orderly natural system as familiar to us as the Fibonacci Sequence or Golden Mean.
In addition is Wave Line, a kinetic, interactive sculpture consisting of 100 hanging lead balls in a 25 foot line that invites viewers to engage with them, creating a wave of motion.
