Artists and scientists can often use different lenses to look at the world. 

But Sukanya Mani freely taps into her training in the sciences to inform her work as an artist. She folds and cuts paper into intricate patterns, often crafting abstract designs to represent scientific concepts. 

Much of her work is inspired by science — the way gravity bends light, or the patterns caused by protons when they smash against each other at high velocity.
