WHAT: The latest exhibit in a program that brings together artists and scientists opens at Johns Hopkins University.

The exhibit, called “The Curse of Dimensionality,” consists of scratch-off wallpaper and transparent fabrics to illustrate the practice of research and highlight the connection between discovery and meaning.

The artist is Kimberly Hall, an illustrator on the faculty of Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) and owner of Nottene design studio. Her work was inspired by spending a semester with a Johns Hopkins lab through the HEMI/MICA Extreme Arts Program.

Hall spent time with the lab of civil engineer Lori Graham-Brady, who explores the random behavior of non-homogenous materials.

The exhibit is free and open to the public.

WHEN: Monday, April 9th through Friday, May 19th. The opening reception will be Thursday, April 12th from 5 to 7 p.m.

WHERE: Q level of the Milton S. Eisenhower Library, on the Homewood campus at 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore.

BACKGROUND: The HEMI/MICA Extreme Arts Program, now in its second year, brings together faculty and students from both institutions to explore perspectives on extreme events. By bringing together artists and researchers, the program hopes to translate results from extreme events in new ways and “create a stronger community through a shared sense of curiosity and exploration.”
