Astrophysicists try to share the mysteries of the Universe around us in a clear and understandable fashion, but we don't always succeed. It's a hard challenge - the wonders of the Solar System, the Galaxy, and the ever expanding Cosmos demand more of our imaginations than can be captured by numbers in a table or terms in an equation. However, a work of art can uniquely inspire us to look closely, dream freely, understand openly - anything from the smallest curiosity to the biggest discovery.
We are asking members of the BU, Boston (and international) community to create works of art that help us visualize our Universe and how we observe it. Whether photographers or poets, crafters or coders, musicians or moviemakers, we want contributors to use their talents and creativity to illuminate the beauty of astrophysical results.
