Hormesis is an installation created by Megan Gafford that explores the way art and science can implicate each other in the search for the sublime. The piece includes a cloud chamber style subatomic particle detector and a film of the radiation made visible in that machine. This paper describes the philosophical, art historical, and sociopolitical concerns that informed Hormesis.
