This project is a collaboration between various individuals, programs and departments on the MSU campus and beyond.

The project began as a collaboration between Prof. Ashwin Vaidya (Physics) and myself as a way to explore ideas of creativity and sustainability in both art and science. More information on Prof. Vaidya and his work is available at:
