Lithium: Where Science and Art Meet?

While British artist Roger Hiorns' installation Seizure, a London flat coated in copper sulphate crystals, relied on chemistry in its creation, Brooklyn-based artist Jeremiah Teipen's installation Lithium relies on chemistry in its inspiration. The artist, who has other works that explore the interesection between art, science, and technology, based the piece  on "models of lithium atoms generated by computers that are powered by lithium-ion batteries."  But perhaps its best explained in his own words: The piece is up now in a building in his neighborhood (220 State Street for anyone in the area), and is at its loveliest from 8pm on.  See any noteworthy chemistry- or science-inspired art in your neighborhood? Give us a heads up.
