It is All About Summer

Do-Something-Everyday, June 21, 2016

This is my rendition of the scientific phenomenon known as electromagnetism in a three-dimensional format. The idea for it came after seeing digital rendition of protein molecules in the shape of ribbons, tendrils and corkscrews in the chemistry magazines that my husband, who is a chemist, subscribes to.

Electromagnetism is one of the fundamental forces of nature that regulate the movement of particles. To represent this phenomenon in art form,  I used a stretched canvas, embroidery threads, metallic beads and paints. I edged the borders with a map of the world to emphasize its material aspects.

I am posting this art to celebrate the beginning of summer yesterday which was astronomically a rare event with summer solstice and full moon happening on the same day.

Today is International Yoga Day. Here is elephant Lochanadevi doing her Sun salutation. This box and other yoga art are  available in my Etsy shop . 

With the summer just starting, the rudbeckias are beginning to show their bright faces to the world. They really make me happy.

Thanks for visiting. Linked to Art Journal Journey which has Maps as the theme this month.

  3. Cool stitching piece on the map. I never thought of making a map for a matte style background but it works really nicely. :) Erika

  4. Fascinating about your map creation inspiration.
    It is beautiful.
    Your yoga art is lovely and flowers are such a gift aren't they!

  5. Wonderful idea to take the colors of the map to create the motif in the middle. It looks very good.
