When science and art meet, awesome things are bound to happen. Such is the case with Luke Jerram’s incredible sculpture made by taking a 9 minute excerpt from the seismogram of the 2011 Tōhoku Japanese earthquake and tsunami and transforming it into a three-dimensional work of art.
“By using computer technology, Jerram rotated the seismogram to find a successful 3-D image. He then created the image with the use of a rapid prototyping machine. The piece is a little under 1 ft. x 8 in. and will be on exhibit in the Jerwood space in London, as part of the Terra exhibit which focuses on how data is read and represented.”
