VS-Winter2015-1000words-p32.png Created by Erwin Redl, an Austrian-born artist from Bowling Green, Ohio, the art installation, Dial, graces the atrium of the new Neuroscience Engineering Collaboration (NEC) Building. Mimicking the firing of the brain’s neurons by creating complex, shifting patterns of light and shadow, Dial is designed to inspire the scientists, engineers, and clinicians who work in the new facility. Redl said much of his art is inspired by the natural world. “I am especially influenced by the long cycles in nature and how complex patterns and rhythms evolve out of simple interactions between individuals acting in large groups.”
