Abstract: The purpose of this research is to gain more understanding of the scientific language. Black symbols and representations of the natural world are used to communicate complex thoughts in various dimensions. Through the process of purification I communicated with confusion and the privilege of being ignorant became my inspiration. My new self is like the alchemists; investigating in new dimensions where symbols and imagery exist to comprehend the always-surrounding unknown. With soda-lime and flat glass I created solid glass symbols. Through the microscope I looked at organic specimens and self-made glass samples and recorded what I saw. Every detail is an indispensable part of an important whole and perceiving is the key to entering new universes. My encounter with science has given me the tools to develop a greater awareness to investigate why and how I am making art. I am convinced that artists and scientists are similar in seeing the universe in unique and specific ways. It is only the representations of those visions that are phrased in different languages.
