Do Magnets Dream of Electron Pairs?

 Do Magnets Dream of Electron Pairs?
Cyndi Lavin, 2017

I went leafing through my husband's undergraduate basic physics textbook one day, looking for more inspiration for my Sacred Geometry series.  I came across a very cool image that inspired the piece above.  I'm not sure if the image was from a bubble chamber or a cloud chamber.  It may have been a cloud chamber, because it was fairly old.  However.  The image showed electron-positron pairs reacting in a magnetic field.  Very cool.

A tutorial for the basic techniques is at the link.
