It was the soundwaves sculpture, with its dense oscillations and vibrant, glossy sheen, that caught the British minister’s eye at the Israel Museum.

The sculpture is the work of technological artist Eyal Gever, who designs cutting-edge computer graphics technology to recreate events like nuclear explosions or capture the sound of a volcanic eruption, and translates their “sublime” moments into sculptures using a 3-D printer. It only seems natural that Gever’s work would appeal to Ed Vaizey.
