The Bonding Agent
Vidro esmaltado, gravura a laser, trabalho a fogo, 44x26 cm
This work is an attempt to symbolize orbital probabilities of electrons that are at the heart of chemistry. Ideas of spinning, attaching, and the nature of our interface as humans with chemistry are the driving forces behind the creation of this work. Much of the thought leading up to this work was influenced by conversations with Dr. António Pires de Matos, and the orbital model used during the engraving process was given to Robert by Dr. Pires de Matos.
