Julian Voss-Andreae

Heart of Steel (Hemoglobin) (2005) by Julian Voss-Andreae. The images show the 5' (1.60 m) tall sculpture right after installation, after 10 days, and after several months of exposure to the elements.

Julian Voss-Andreae (born 15 August 1970) is a German sculptor living and working in the U.S.

Voss-Andreae was born in Hamburg, West Germany, and started out as a painter.[1] He later studied experimental physics at the universities of Berlin, Edinburgh and Vienna. Voss-Andreae pursued his graduate research in quantum physics in Anton Zeilinger's research group, participating in an experiment demonstrating quantum behavior for the largest objects to date.[2] He moved to the U.S. in 2000 and graduated from the Pacific Northwest College of Art in 2004.

Voss-Andreae’s work is heavily influenced by his background in science. His work includes protein sculptures,[3] such as Angel of the West (2008),[4] a large-scale outdoor sculpture for the Scripps Research Institute in Jupiter, Florida portraying the human antibody molecule, a sculpture for Nobel laureate Roderick MacKinnon based on the ion channel structure,[5] and the quantum physics-inspired Quantum Man (2006).[6][7]

Recent work includes an exhibition at the American Center for Physics displaying a series of sculptures inspired by concepts from quantum physics.[8]
