Iridescence

July 17, 2021

In a mesmerizing feature exhibition, the Louisiana Art & Science Museum explores the rainbow-esque, vaporous phenomenon of iridescence. The exhibit is presented as an art-science collaboration between with Dr. Nathan Lord, Assistant Professor in the Department of Entomology and Director of the Louisiana State Arthropod Museum and artists Karl Gaff, Ted Kinsman, Christopher Marley, Kate Nichols, Soo Sunny Park, Jennifer Robison, and Franziska Schenk, along with partners from Louisiana State University. Through works of art that capture and manipulate the dazzling effects of iridescence in the real world—in soap bubbles, bird feathers, gemstones, fishscales, even special edition LSU football helmets—LASM aims to educate the public on core STEAM concepts such as color, perception, physics, biology, fashion, photography, and art. Keep up with a year of programming around Iridescence through the exhibitions website exploreiridescence.com and its Instagram @explore–iridescence. You can also learn more at lasm.org.
