The Image of Physics
April 15 – May 8
The noted American photographer Berenice Abbott worked for three years to create a dramatic photographic study of a series of experiments in physics. Thirty-two photographs made with a stroboscopic camera illustrate the behavior of water waves, relationship of a bouncing ball to the surface it strikes, the path travelled by an unsymmetrical body when thrown, and many other experiments in physics. These works demonstrate a meeting ground for knowledge in the areas of the sciences and the arts. The exhibition is circulated by the Smithsonian Institution and was the first shown at the Currier Gallery of Art, Manchester, New Hampshire.
