I am a student in material chemistry and I make sculpture. The goal of my life is to blend art and chemistry. Actually, I try to find a PHD position on that.

What I want to do is not a translation of chemistry to the public, I want to fascinate them with chemical dynamic sculpture in hope they wil looking for by themself.

We can see a lot of wonderful physical effect (polarity, plasma....) and chemical reaction (electrolyse, oscilating reaction...) which noboddy know. If we want to focus the attention of the other people, I think It's more with sublimation then translation.
