Artist's Description

Polymer Fiber Spinning is a drawing based on concepts from polymer physics and engineering. While the drawing can function as a diagram, artistic aesthetics are also a major consideration. Polymer Fiber Spinning takes some of the rules and elements of scientific diagrams and dives into Art through interesting yet logical departures from those rules. While mindful of aesthetics I’ve included allusions to phenomena ranging from chain folded polymer crystallization to chain stretching and confinement in the crystalline amorphous interphase to the changes in density and polycrystalline morphology that occur as a fiber is spun at high speed and then drawn. There are also some branched structures included because these topologies are typical of polymers polymerized through reactions that allow backbiting and such. Also – I think it’s pretty.
