30' buckyball structure by Julian Voss-Andreae. View from below.
Location: Tryon Creek State Park, Portland, Oregon
When Oregonians look up, they often see rain clouds and the crowns of Doug Fir trees, but in Tryon Creek State Park in Portland, Oregon, when hikers glance up at the trees, they might be surprised to see a thirty foot buckyball sculpture cascading through the branches of these towering trees. This sculpture called “Quantum Reality” was inspired by the artist's, Julian Voss-Andraea's, graduate research demonstrating that buckyballs (C60) can go through two openings at once, demonstrating that despite their size, they exhibit quantum behavior.
