In March, sculptor Alyson Shotz visited Stanford as the annual Sterling Visiting Professor in the Department of Chemical and Systems Biology. While here, she collaborated with students for a week of creativity building. Among the activities, Shotz and students visited a studio to stress glass in various ways, including enclosing foods in it, and then returned to campus to examine and photograph the samples microscopically.
The above video captures snippets from the experiments and features Shotz discussing the relationship between empirical research and experimentation in art.
