Compositions created by shooting helium-neon and cobalt lasers through glass or directing sunlight on a Mylar-embossed diffraction grating, by Reginald Pollack.

"The artist Paul Klee said in 1928 that there is ‘plenty of room left for exact experiment in art… What had been accomplished in music by the end of the 18th century has only begun in the fine arts. Mathematics and physics have given us a clue in the form of rules to be strictly observed or departed from, as the case may be … to look beyond the surface and get to the root of things.’"
