Calling all Scientists!

 Do you work in science or have an interest in science, or know a scientist working locally? I'm making a sculpture to represent the striving for scientific understanding.

The artwork will include a composition of hundreds of glass circles, each etched with a fragment of information relating to our understanding of nature.  

I’m after...
  • Images
  • Text
  • Diagrams
  • Formulae 
...that describe nature on any scale, from galaxies to subatomic particles.

These can be widely accepted theories, but I’d love to use ideas from work that is being carried out within the Science Vale

A couple of technical points:
  • I'm using an etch process to make the glass designs.  High-contrast monochrome images work best.
  • The biggest circles are only 5cm diameter, so succinct or representative info is ideal.
  • The quality of the etch is roughly equivalent to paperback book print, so design text should be at least 2mm tall, and very fine lines won't show.
  • JPEG images approx. 1000px would be good, and please indicate what each image is of. 
The best place to submit images is the facebook  page.

There are 600+ circles, so feel free to contribute as many images as you like.

Many thanks!
