Alex the Astronaut
Alex is an Australian singer song writer, known as Alex the Astronaut as well as a physicist. Alex’s thesis combined her passions: sound and science. Her research looked into sonorluminescence, which is the process of transforming sound into light.
Lover of all things dinosaurs Hugh jumped at the opportunity to work with a scientist to create a Shirty Science shirt. He and Alex threw around a number of ideas finally settling on a visual representation of sonorluminescence. The design links to Alex’s work as a muscian as at first glance the image resembles a recording studio, but is instead an experiment transferring sound into light.
