James Yang graphic art

A colleague introduced me to the artist James Yang, whose work seems to have a special appeal for geeky scientists like me. Below are a couple of nice images from his portfolio, with my own suggested captions :-)

"Physics department" (Peter Galison: ''My question is not how different scientific communities pass like ships in the night,'' he wrote in Image and Logic. ''It is rather how, given the extraordinary diversity of the participants in physics -- cryogenic engineers, radio chemists, algebraic topologists, prototype tinkerers, computer wizards, quantum field theorists -- they speak to each other at all.'' :-)

"Discovering China"

"The biotech century"
