My studio practice grows out of an intense curiosity about the ways in which our society is supported by science and technology. I use my training as an artist to illuminate the hidden realities of our world. I have worked with Fermi National Accelerator as their first Artist in Residence and am a member of the Art@CMS group at CERN in Switzerland. I have collaborated with scientists at the Field Museum, The Chicago Botanic Garden, Indiana University Northwest and have recently been invited to be the resident artist on the ADEON experiment in June 2018. I book exhibitions, lecture widely and write articles promoting the value of using art to help others appreciate the beauty of science.
"Lindsay Olson is the only artist I've ever met who embraces science in an undaunted manner determined to help us all understand and appreciate it. She finds beauty in the beautiful mysteries of science and makes sense out of the pure logic that undergirds science."
