This culminating chapter of a trilogy by Joseph Cohen features artworks created with paint that he developed in a medical research laboratory using nanomaterials -- from tracer dyes to separated carbon nanotubes. The works fluoresce outside of the visible spectrum -- ultraviolet and infrared, allowing for multidimensional viewing. When observed with a special light source, the art transforms into vibrant color; and when viewed under natural light, an evident, but faint glow emits from the works due to Cohen's use of purified phosphorous. Also on view are works from Cohen's Chapters 1 and 2.
