About the Artist
Isabel Bishop is an artist who loves putting wildly different things together. Being passionate about a number of different subjects meant that it was difficult for her to narrow down her undergraduate studies at Coe College. From an ambitious goal of three majors and two minors, Bishop eventually ended up with a degree in physics with a minor in fine arts.
At Coe, she learned how putting two wildly different subjects side by side brings out not only their stark differences, but surprising similarities. Her thesis exhibition, “It’s Not that Scary” focuses on the marriage between fine arts and physics and how, like all good marriages, the combination can bring out the best parts of each.
Thanks to the help of the Society of Physics Students and the American Physical Society, Isabel’s exploration continues in this virtual exhibition, where she continues to explore art as an engagement tool for science.
In the future, she hopes to continue her work combining art and physics for use in the educational field. She hopes her work can make physics accessible and exciting for those who might otherwise be intimidated by the subject.
