Professor Gosnell Combines Art and Science in Immersive Art Piece

Recommended Posts

Natalie Gosnell, a professor of physics at Colorado College, wants to change the way we see and practice physics. For her, physics comes most naturally as a creative process and for the duration of her career learning and practicing physics, she’s struggled with external pressures to separate her creative and scientific selves.

“Both artists and scientists are just observing things about the world, making interpretations about those observations, and then sharing their interpretation,” says Gosnell.

Despite the strong ties she feels between art and science, she’s had to work for years in a society divided. Gosnell sees this division rooted in the systemic racism and sexism that the physics institution has been born into, which limits what physics could be and limits the people who feel welcome practicing it.

“As an astrophysicist, I'm a product of institutions that are steeped in systemic racism and white supremacy,” Gosnell says. “The tenets of white supremacy that show up [in physics] of individualism and exceptionalism and perfectionism… it’s either-or thinking, and there's no subtlety, there's no gray area. All of this manifests in the way that we think about our research, and what counts as good research, what counts as important research?”
