This mural can be found on the very bottom floor of the Thomas Gosnell building at RIT. The mural is made up of smaller black tiles with white outlines for the design. However, the designs grab your attention as they are no ordinary patterns or common shapes to overlook.
The designs consist the muscular system of a man, the constellation of the big dipper, oceanic creatures, numbers, letters, and etc. that all pertain to what the Gosnell building represents– science.
The mural consists of over 100 tiles. Almost every tile has a black background. I thought this was an appropriate color as black can mean mystery. Science is a mystery. Sometimes people get lost or confused when looking for answers to a question. I feel as though the white lines/designs on the black titles represent the answers. The answers to a question become clear and bright.
One of the best parts about this mural is that it is big. Gosnell has at least three floors with an open atrium. I used to have a class on the third floor. While I waited to go to my next class in Gosnell, I would sometimes look over the stair railings and look down at the mural. Although I was high up from the mural, I could see the designs on every tile clearly. I saw that every tile is important to the mural. The design on each tile represents something in the science field and that helps create/paint a bigger picture.
