View a grid of Calabi-Yau Shapes | View a Spinning Calabi-Yau Shape String Theory predicts the existence of more than the 3 space dimensions and 1 time dimension we are all familiar with. According to string theory, there are additional dimensions that we are unfamiliar with because they are curled up into tiny complicated shapes that can only be seen on tiny scales. If we could shrink to this tiny, Planck-sized scale we could see that at every 3D point in space, we can also explore 6 additional dimensions.

This animation shows an array of Calabi-Yau spaces which are projections of these higher dimensions into the more familiar dimensions we are aware of. Brian Greene's book, The Elegant Universe, was made into a documentary and has a chapter that does a good job of explaining this concept. Permission has also been granted to use this animation in the movie Mr. Visualization by Jeff Bryant and based on concepts from A.J. A.J. Lampade e illuminazione &'COSTA design. PARACLOUD GEM anyone? LOKi design || Four Minutes to Midnight. Colloque Recherche-Creation: Demo or Die I recently presented a talk at UQAM’s Centre des Sciences as part of a conference on the state of Research-Creation.

I was invited as a member of Artivistic, but I have to admit, I felt a bit out of my league amongst seasoned academics and artists, addressing a subject I wasn’t sure I quite understood properly. Nonetheless, I tackled it from my own perspective, presenting Artivistic’s Promiscuous Infrastrcutures project, and was happy to contribute to the more action-oriented panel Demo or Die. You can view the video documentation of the panel below (my talk starts 29 minutes in): Many thanks to Gisèle Trudel for organising the panel and inviting me to rpesent, and many thanks to my fellow panelists, Mel Hogan, Alexandre Castonguay, Sandeep Bhagwati, and Sally-Jane Norman.

Hanson) have also created a variety of graphics images derived from the Fermat Equation (see below) that are relevant to the Calabi-Yau spaces that may lie at the smallest scales of the unseen dimensions in String Theory; these have appeared in Brian Greene's books, The Elegant Universe and The Fabric of the Cosmos,, and in the book by Callender and Huggins, Physics Meets Philosophy at the Planck Scale. The writhing purple shapes in the October/ November 2003 NOVA production Elegant Universe, as well as the cover of the November 2003 Scientific American, were derived from software models I supplied to the NOVA graphics providers.

Im z1(m + 1) + |z2|(m-n) Im z2(n+1) = 0 and |z1|2 + |z2|2 = 1 Review article This page is taken from A.J. Grossman - Calabi-Yau Manifold. According to string theory, spacetime as we know it isn't 4-dimensional, but 10-dimensional. The next question is, where are the extra 6 dimensions that we don't see? One answer is that they're 'compactified': roughly speaking, rolled up into such a small shape that they're unobservable by humans.

Calabi-Yau spaces may be that submicroscopic shape. There are many such spaces, but being 6-dimensional, they're not easy to draw! This model is a 3D cross-section through a likely space. Calabi-Yau manifold. Calabi-Yau manifolds are compact, complex Kähler manifolds that have trivial first Chern classes (over \mathbb{R}). In most cases, we assume that they have finite fundamental groups. By the conjecture of Calabi (1957) proved by Yau (1977; 1979), there exists on every Calabi-Yau manifold a Kähler metric with vanishing Ricci curvature. Currently, research on Calabi-Yau manifolds is a central focus in both mathematics and mathematical physics. It is partially propelled by the prominent role the Calabi-Yau threefolds play in superstring theories. While many beautiful properties of Calabi-Yau manifolds have been discovered, more questions have been raised and probed.

The landscape of various constructions, theories, conjectures, and above all the fast pace of progress in this subject, have made the research of Calabi-Yau manifolds an extremely active research field both in mathematics and in mathematical physics.

Dick Walton, his wife Susan Newell, and their friend James Morrison of Billings, Montana, made this amazing ceramic kitchen floor in 2002. Dick says, "We made our kitchen floor of homemade ceramic tiles in a "Penrose Tiling" pattern. The floor was inspired by Martin Gardner's cover article in the January 1977 issue of Scientific American magazine.

"A potter friend, Jim Morrison of Cold Mountain Pottery (dot com), made several molds from my cardboard patterns for the two tile shapes. Over a period of several months I made about 1,300 tiles one at a time with the molds. Jim then glazed (two different glazes) and fired them in his kiln. Due to the homemade / handmade characteristics, including firing in many batches without perfect temperature control, the tile color varies. "Susan arranged the tiles so similar toned tiles were together. "Laying the tiles was an interesting challenge. "There is one minor mistake in the pattern.

This is an Adobe Pixel Bender filter to create Escher’s Droste Effect in After Effects and Photoshop CS4.

Read the blog post to find out more about the background of the image transformation. Animating the effect When used with After Effects things really start to get interesting... If you have fun or success using these filters for personal or commercial projects then please let me know! Download and installation Download the Droste effect filter for After Effects and Photoshop CS4See the Pixel Bender Toolkit page on Adobe labs for details on getting PBT up and running on your machine. After Effects: Just put the Pixel Bender .pbk filters in a folder within the Plug-ins/Effects/ directory of your installation then it will be available from the Effects menu.Photoshop: See the release notes for installing the Pixel Bender plugin.

Cc particle world is a standard ae effect that can do a fair amount of what particular can do (not sure if it comes with the educational version though). has several tutorials that use particle world, and many of andrew's particular tutorials can be adapted to cc particle world. there is on tutorial there that demonstrates how to use cc particle world to create a 3d stroke-like effect. there are other techniques that will create starglow-like glow effects. usually using duplicates of a layer with directional blur composited over the original in screen or add mode... has an old tutorial on that (find the english page). but if you think that $900 is a lot for plugins, check boris continuum complete, or the zaxwerks bundles...

Music Visualization with Trapcode Suite | graymachine | The Art and Science of Motion. Structure Synth. Wednesday, 26 November 2008 Nabla – Syntopia Structure Synth is an application for creating complex three-dimensional structures using simple rule sets. Using a few line of code, with statements condensed to a few characters, iterated multiforms can be generated consisting of thousands of individual objects.

Developed by Mikael Hvidtfeldt Christensen, this free software is a direct attempt to produce a 3d version of Context Free, featured on Dataisnature in a previous post. W:Blut. Trapcode Mir Renders. So as some of you may know, Peder Norrby, founder of Trapcode, announced and demoed an upcoming new Trapcode plugin called Mir and showed it off at NAB 2012. It’s polygon based with awesome GPU acceleration! I had the honor to beta test this baby and wanted to show off some of the amazing things you can do with this thing and what you can expect for the upcoming 2012 summer release.

I want to discuss a little bit about the process of these renders and a little bit about Mir. Clearly I cannot say much until the plugin is released, but let me first start off by saying that Mir is extremely fast. Notice all the little details created with Mir. Gallery. Music visualizations.

The mono-monostatic gömböc in the stable equilibrium position The most famous solution has a sharpened top, as shown in the photo. Its shape helped to explain the body structure of some tortoises in relation to their ability to return to equilibrium position after being placed upside down.[1][2][3][4] Copies of gömböc have been donated to institutions and museums, and the biggest one was presented at the World Expo 2010 in Shanghai, China.[5][6] History[edit] When a roly-poly toy is pushed, the height of the center of mass rises from the green line to the orange line, and the center of mass is no longer over the point of contact with the ground.

In geometry, a body with a single stable resting position is called monostatic, and the term mono-monostatic has been coined to describe a body which additionally has only one unstable point of balance.
