Reveal both art and science behind these optically spectacular portraits of three UW researchers. Funded in part by the Madison Arts Commission, along with the Wisconsin Arts Board, and special thanks to Arts + Literature Laboratory.

Did’ya know? Aedan Gardill, an artist and physics graduate student, creates portraits that rely on a special optical property of light, and are nearly invisible unless viewed with something called a polarizer. Watch the video HERE to reveal the art and science behind the phenomenon – and even learn how to make similar art yourself!
