Student Ashley Disbrow presents her work
at the 2014 American Astronomical Society
meeting in Washington, DC.

Student Emma Wadley created the installation art,
titled Void (2016), shown above. Her artist statement
includes this description: "I have used black
paper to represent fear through the colour
associated with death, shadows and the deepest
nights ... The addition of light creates an
eerie iridescence and the soundscape aims to
unnerve and intrigue through otherworldly noise
of Gravitational waves and the Mariana Trench."
