Physicist and artist Paul Friedlander has focused on the merger between his two fields of expertise within his rainbow-hued light sculptures. Kinetic displays of artwork are central to his project, relayed here to viewers via rotating strings and white lights.

As the strings rotate, a series of colors are produced by way of the white light. The rapid movements cannot be seen by the human eye however, making it appear as if the bright beams are coming out of the air.

Friedlander has remained intent on continuing his focus upon both science and art as he stated, "I decided to focus on kinetic art: a subject in which I could bring together my divided background and combine my knowledge of physics with my love of light."
