Spin Family by Julian Voss-Andreae

About the project:

Spin Family (Bosons and Fermions) playfully equates the two fundamental kinds of matter in the universe with the two human genders. Due to their difference in a quantum physical property called spin, fermions have a tendency to stay isolated whereas bosons tend to attract each other. Spin Family is a series of objects displaying the three-dimensional structure of the spin as it follows from the quantum mechanical description. A continuous silk thread representing the spin is woven in and out of tiny circular metal frames giving a diaphanous quality to the overall forms. The single, well-defined direction of the spin in classical physics expands in quantum physics into a continuum of possibilities.
