Student Ashley Disbrow presents her work at the 2014 American Astronomical Society meeting in Washington, DC.

Student Emma Wadley created the installation art, titled Void (2016), shown above. Her artist statement includes this description: "I have used black paper to represent fear through the colour associated with death, shadows and the deepest nights ... The addition of light creates an eerie iridescence and the soundscape aims to unnerve and intrigue through otherworldly noise of Gravitational waves and the Mariana Trench."
