Woven Northern Lights

Allison Crawford, Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design

This piece draws its inspiration from magnetometers, a subject of significant discourse within Professor Moldwin’s lab. These instruments play a role in understanding the underlying processes that contribute to the formation of the Northern Lights.

Through my woven structure, I wanted to convey that magnetometers and the Northern Lights have a common connection through their interaction with Earth’s magnetic field and the phenomena driven by this field.

This woven structure of the Northern Lights measures 26.5” x 32.”

This project resulted from an Art/Sci Student Residency with Professor Mark Moldwin.
