Tale of the unseen force

In 1857, Eunice Newton Foote was able to present her investigation on atmospheric static electricity herself during the yearly gathering of the Scientific Association. This -again- seminal work was subsequently published in 1857, appearing in both the American Journal of Science and Arts and the Philosophical Magazine. Her study delved into the correlation between atmospheric moisture levels and the production of static electricity in the air. Sadly enough, despite its significance, her research was once again overlooked after a few years and eventually faded into obscurity.

The story serves as the foundation for a triptych exploring her discoveries in atmospheric electricity, featuring a female person (herself?) as the ‘conductor’ and her hair symbolizing the electric waves. It’s a triptych because, for the third time, this ‘unseen force’ didn’t receive the credit she deserved.
