Evan Read CR No. 1 (Space is the Place), Tilt Circle Wind Tunnel no. 1 CR. No 1 All 2010, Ultrachrome inkjet print on paper, mounted on DiBond


Evan Read, a geneticist who works for the Metropolitan Museum of Art, trans- lates images of the subatomic into digital abstractions. Read is strongly influenced by a life long connection to science. This comes through in the types of source imagery (e.g., wind tunnel images, television test patterns, light diffraction diagrams, contour maps and astrophotography) and in his borrowing from the diagrammatic language of technical illustration. Influences that have shaped his work alongside science include light and the use of light in connection with music; the psy- chedelic; 3-D postcards; eccentric or unusual examples of modernist and post-modernist architecture.
