PhysCon attendees gaze upon artwork displayed in the SLAC VUE Center. Artist John Zaklikowski created Stanford Vacuum Chamber with stainless steel, brass, more than 70 feet of copper tubing, 200 vacuum tubes, 18 security cameras, and hundreds of computer components and hi-tech devices in juxtaposition with everyday objects.
