Transcript Dr. Kiehn Expresses Physics Equations In 'New Art Type' Dr. Kiehn explains the painting hanging beside his desk to a student. The deep orange and black painting depicts the "singularity function" used in electrical engineering. Physics dominates the life of Dr. Robert M. Kiehn. The associate professor has even developed what he calls "a scheme for artistic expression of physics equations." Kiehn received all of his degrees at MIT. He did not take a master's degree and received his doctorate in 1954. His field is theoretical physics in classical fields and relativity. He has been at UH for four years and teaches quantatitive mechanics and sophomore classes in field theory. The physicist did experimental work on construction of nuclear powered submarines at the Argonne National Laboratories and aided in the development of the non-aqueous water fluid fuel builder reactor. At the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratories he worked on the development of the fast breeder reactors for nuclear weapons. He is the inventor of the molten plutonium reactor system. He has participated in Nevada and Pacific nuclear test operations and in 1962 he was in charge of the airborne laboratory for high altitude testing in the Pacific. Most of his work is now theoretical. Outside the world of physics Kiehn's interests revolve around his home in Lu- ling, Texas. He does not like to become involved in extra-curricular campus activities. In Luling with his family he raises cattle, keeps up a pecan tree orchard and flies his own Cessna 172 to Houston. Kiehn began painting for fun with oils but he soon decided that he did not have the patience or talent for conventional forms of painting, so he developed a "new art type." He took Einstein's equation for the theory of relativity and depicted it in a topological art form. He uses spray paints in bright colors. He says he can do one of these paintings in an hour or two. He describes his paintings as having topological structure and functional and optical shape and direction. "The thing I like best about this art type is that anyone can do it; regular people can do it," he says.
