Science and Art

Earlier this year, I was lucky enough to be awarded a Villum Foundation Young Investigator grant. A couple of days ago the Foundation’s Annual Report came out [dk link, en link. note: this is a 10mb download], with a very nice cover that features graphics designed by yours truly.

The cover art was created by the Danish artist Smike Käszner based on my graphics. Just for fun, I’ve included the original figures below. Here’s the main network:

As far as I can tell, the graphic that appears in Smike’s artwork is a mirror image of the communication network at 20:00. I’m not 100 percent sure, but I think the background hairball was lifted from the figure below (even though I can’t see the self-loop in the cover art anywhere in my network).

Inside the report (p 65), there’s a nice feature on my project.
