Art meets science in Chirality: Defiant Mirror Images. This exhibition plays out the unique agency of chiral forms – their asymmetrical symmetry, how they look alike and act differently, and their ability to spin light out into space (or optical activity) – when introduced to the realm of art. Invoking “agency” in terms of the dynamics of chiral form, the exhibition sets in relief new models of form-making, individuation, and social action.
