Object D4h

Facebook logo Twitter logo Twitter logo Twitter logo
This is a sculpture that came out of the minds of engineers, sculptors and chemists. Object D4h is made of plastic and metal, and its center spins through a motor, but it’s an abstract take on a real copper molecule that was synthesized in the lab of Jessica Hoover,  an assistant professor in the C. Eugene Bennett Department of Chemistry. The students who created the sculpture are part of a program that Hoover runs called CESTA, which brings six students from various universities, including WVU, and gives them a month  in the summer to design and create a sculpture that incorporates engineering, chemistry and art, and shares the beauty and joy of chemistry with the public. D4h will be on the second floor of the Evansdale Library until the next CESTA project is created this summer. Learn more at https://cestasymmetry.wordpress.com/
