Art with a Rheological Influence

Almost by total accident, I ran across the artwork of Mike Solomon, a New York-based artist who appears to work with netting and resins to create sculptures with some beautiful flow in them. Consider this one, called "Panta rhei": Somehow Mike has brushed up against rheologists, as he doesn't just stop with Panta rhei, but also has another rheology-inspired sculpture entitled "The Deborah Number":
His website has many more pictures of his art, most of which do not have a rheological title. Please click over there and have a look. In the mean time, I'm contacting Mike to find out about how he became so rheological.
