GCCC researchers aren’t just talented scientists, they are incredible artists too. In collaboration with the Centers for Subsurface Energy Security, Hilary Olson teamed up with Victoria Osborne, Kim Gilbert, and Jeffery Clement Olson to create this sumptuous data-rich artwork. The graphic integrated into the art shows the ability of stored CO2 to dissolve in brines of various chemical compositions. The accompanying poem, As Above, So Below, recounts the shared quest of scientists and artists to unlock the universe’s magic.
The entry won second place in the DOE’s Poetry of Science Contest, which challenged entrants to convey the wonder of science using poetry inspired by a scientific image. Now, Team CFSES is competing for the People’s Choice Award. Take a look at all the gorgeous and inspiring poetry and artwork in the competition, then help catapult CCS to the top with your vote!
