Doris Yee

Stephanie Herr is a German artist whose topographic sculptures speak to humanity’s interaction with the natural world and dissociation thereof.

      In addition, and interestingly, The NION company ( created a type of STEM that can color-code atoms using electron energy signatures several years ago - and recent advances are making color nanoscale molecular mapping more probable:

        This could get ugly. It's a hybrid of food-coloring science and a relief sculpture class.
