Item details

Electromagnetic Fall is a large-scale mosaic created for a science
building addition at Queens College in New York. The mosaic depicts particles colliding on the top floor and falling 3 floors to the bottom. The mosaic continues, creating a continuity of movement and energy on each floor with lines of particles wrapping 9 columns. A unique production process enabled the use of 100 different textures and colors of glass tile to reflect daylight and enhance visual texture and movement.

Electromagnetic Fall was selected as one of the top public art projects of 2010 by Americans for the Arts.

My working process is an interplay between highly sophisticated digital means woven into traditional media with an emphasis on the hand. I utilize a range of media including animation, programming, printing, painting and mosaic.

Carter Hodgkin transforms atomic particle collisions into line and color to create animations, paintings and large-scale mosaic installations.
