One of the suggestions for visualizing the theme for Laughlin was,
"Something that can illustrate the emergence concept, like multiple
objects combined to create a new one (more complex). "
The work of Robert Laughlin, who "was awarded the 1998 Nobel Prize in
physics for his explanation of the fractional quantum Hall effect.
Moreover he argues for emergence which is a concept that says 'The whole
is more than the sum of its parts.' Fedora is more than the sum of its
Visually I think this concept could make a nice theme. It could be cool
to use objects or phenomena from nature to illustrate it. e.g., many
drops of water making a stream or whatnot. Do you have any ideas on how
we might visualize this?
BTW Tatica put together some mockups around a atomic theme:
I think the backdrop of atomos.svg is nice - with a bit of tweaking it
could make a nice abstract pattern.
