This article is built around an art piece, which depicts a particular phenomenon in physics concerning the process of transition and transformation; in other words, change. In itself the art piece is an example of ‘regenring’ in that it re-presents information that has previously been produced in other genres (scientific papers, mathematical formulae) by producing it using a different genre: a mixed media collaged picture displayed on a wall. In keeping with the theme of transformation and change, the article uses four different genres in discussing the piece: account of what is observed, interview with the maker of the piece, reflection-in-action shown in italics and reflection-on-action shown in boxes (the distinction of reflection-in- and reflection-on- action is taken from Schön) and in so doing explores, through these different lenses, how the art piece helps or hinders the unpacking of the science that it represents. It also provides a multilayered reflection on the theme of change itself since every aspect of this article, the topic, the art piece, the physics and the textual activity of how the discussion is represented, revolves around representing and observing through different lenses, regenring and transformation.
