Fermi by Tony Smith is the artist’s homage to Enrico Fermi, the Nobel Prize-winning Italian physicist who investigated quantum theory and atomic structures. The balls and connecting bonds in this modular form resemble greatly magnified particles of the atom.

In Fermi, acquired by Henry Segerstrom in 1975, Smith directs the viewer to consider the complex structure of nature while offering up a form that can also be appreciated for its uncomplicated elegance. 

Fermi is located in the Center Club lobby of Center Tower.
