On Tuesday, Sept 21, 2021, at 11:30 a.m. Joseph Gallivan interviews artist Julian Voss-Andreae [PRONOUNCED Voss-andRAY] about his segmented sculptures of human forms which seem to disappear as you look at them from different angles. Voss-Andreae talks about trying to visualize quantum physics, emigrating from Germany to Portland and switching from being a scientist to a full-time artist. His work is visible around the US and can be see on the campus of the Southeast campus of Portland Community College, and on Hawthorne Boulevard.

From the website:
Julian Voss-Andreae, a German sculptor based in Portland Oregon, is widely known for his striking large-scale public and private commissions often blending figurative sculpture with scientific insights into the nature of reality. His sculptures are frequently shown at international art fairs and galleries and can be found in major collections in North America, Asia, Europe, Africa, and Australia. Voss-Andreae’s work has been featured in print and broadcast media worldwide and videos of his sculpture have gone viral with tens of millions of views. Prior to his art career, Julian Voss-Andreae studied quantum physics and philosophy at the Universities of Berlin and Edinburgh and did his graduate research participating in a seminal experiment in foundational quantum physics at one of the world’s most prestigious physics research labs at the University of Vienna. His expertise in diverse fields of science and a deep passion for the mysteries of quantum physics have been a continual source of inspiration for his work.
