Fluid Motion Simulations and Artwork

Fluid Motion Simulations and Artwork
When a droplet falls into shallow water, it creates a crown or "coronet". This droplet simulation was calculated using Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH). SPH is one of the most impressive-looking fluid simulation techniques. Droplet Links Liquid Sculpture - beautiful high speed photographs, by Martin Waugh, see also this video Water Figures - beautiful high-speed camera splashes by Fotoopa Other Links Fluids v.1 - fast SPH C++ program by Rama Hoetzlein Physics Demos - fluid Java applets by Grant Kot Fluid Animations - amazing animations by Ron Fedkiw, with Eran Guendelman, Andrew Selle, Frank Losasso, et al.

Michael Shapcott - Part 2 Work in Progress (Graphite) I’ve always been fascinated with the idea of seeing into the future. Ultimately I feel that we are the creators of our own destiny but also that there is this mystery and force that is greater than ourselves simultaneously at work. It’s no doubt that our choices and actions help to create our future but how much is left to fate or to the great threads that link all of our lives into one? Perhaps most intriguing, is there a way to tap into and obtain a glimpse of what can or will happen to us? With these questions and ideas in mind, I decided to create this visual story of a girl who traveled a long distance and overcame many challenges to obtain an ancient power to see into the future. The girl in the painting is named Crystallina. The Death of Crystallina 24″ x 36″ Graphite/Acrylic/Oil on Canvas

Physics Flash Animations We have been increasingly using Flash animations for illustrating Physics content. This page provides access to those animations which may be of general interest. The animations will appear in a separate window. The animations are sorted by category, and the file size of each animation is included in the listing. Also included is the minimum version of the Flash player that is required; the player is available free from In addition, I have prepared a small tutorial in using Flash to do Physics animations. LInks to versions of these animations in other languages, other links, and license information appear towards the bottom of this page. The Animations There are 99 animations listed below. Other Languages and Links These animations have been translated into Catalan, Spanish and Basque: En aquest enllaç podeu trobar la versió al català de les animacions Flash de Física. These animations were written by David M.

How To Draw "How to Draw" is a collection of tutorials that will teach you everything from perspective basics to shading chrome. Never picked up a pencil before? Fear not! From simple line drawings to modern art and easy animations, we've got you covered. Instructables is the most popular project-sharing community on the Internet. Paul Villinski artwork > birds and butterflies birds and butterflies I am drawn to humble, yet evocative materials; in this case, crushed beer cans from the streets of New York - every one of them once raised to someone’s lips. My process of “recycling” them into images of butterflies is a quiet physical meditation, a yoga of tin snips and files and more: • on beer can butterflies As the butterflies alight on the walls of my studio, they lead into an exploration of formal, painterly issues. Often, they want to gather into a certain shape, or fly off on a particular tangent, and I let them. They function both as marks in these abstract, three-dimensional “paintings,” and as actors in curious narratives. Butterflies seem impossible. ^ less

Physics Simulation with Java 16 tips to improve as a graphic designer Graphic design is a field that is quickly changing, both creatively and technically, and while it is easy to get caught up in learning new technical skills, it is just as important to focus improving and pushing the limits of our creativity. While in design school, it was easy to surround myself with inspiration and engage in activities that helped my understanding of effective design. Once I graduated I feared losing it, since I was no longer surrounded by a learning environment. I made it a point to continue educating myself as much as possible and become more active in the field of design. Become a collector Each time you see a design that inspires you, collect it, bring it home and file it away. Buy books Having an extensive book collection is always essential to learning. Read design-related blogs I can’t stress enough how much information I have learned by reading other great designers blogs. Start a design blog Join and be active in the design community Take lots of photos Take classes

e - c l o u d 10 Websites To Make You Think | The Online Learning Blog from Study2U Supposedly browsing the internet requires more brain power than watching television. Although judging from some of the websites we’ve come across that assumption is cast into doubt. Here’s some of the sites we like that might get your brain to sit up and listen. Ted A conference that started in 1984 bringing together experts in technology, entertainment and design quickly grew into so much more. New Scientist The New Scientist website carries new articles from the magazine as well as the NS archive of over 76,000 pieces. Big Think The Big Think website is a collection of ‘global thought leaders’ who offer their thoughts and analysis on world events and other important developments. Café Scientifque ‘for the price of a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, anyone can come to explore the latest ideas in science and technology’ Breathing Earth This fantastic website by David Bleja demonstrates CO2 emissions and world population growth in real time on a global map.

Annual HI-FRUCTOSE Group Invitational Exhibit @ ROQ LA RUE | Hi-Fructose magazine is, quite possibly, my favorite hard-copy art publication in print right now. It’s physical construction alone is worthy of admiration, feeling more like a work of art to be protected than a rag to toss carelessly in your bathroom. My last issue was actually delivered in a carefully packed box with a free CD and a viewmaster reel (feat. designer toy art by Sam Flores, Mark Ryden, Jeremy Fish, Luke Chueh, etc.). We’ve written about Kirsten in the past and addressed her tremendous contributions to both Seattle and the Pop-Surrealism/New Contemporary/low-brow art worlds as a whole. The following quotes/details come via the official press release and “Hi-Fructose Magazine is pleased to announce it’s 2011 group exhibition at Roq La Rue Gallery. The group of participating artists and styles are diverse. Roq La Rue Gallery and Hi Fructose Magazine present “The Hi Fructose Group Invitational” opens Friday March 11th 6-9pm runs through April 2nd visit

Thank you,I,ve placed it into my pearltrees. I very much appreciate this. by ixgagbalamvucub Mar 18

Thanks I was working on that today I'll send you the link ;-) by mirlen101 Mar 17

I think that it would be an excellent idea to create a pearltree dedicated to these different classes of waves as in one way,or another they are interconnected. This may very well end up being a large pearltree, as there is a large amount of very interesting information on particle waves,the behaviour of particles when observed,as versus unobserved,which inturn has an effect on how the particle waves themselves are formed. The subject of particle waves themselves would consist of several informative,and fascinating pearls. by ixgagbalamvucub Mar 17

Ned worked on exhibits at the science Exploratorium in San Francisco before going out on his own as an architechtual artist.The Exploratorium is an awesome place for cool science exhibits .
The "wave theory of everything" will be wide in scope . Physics , art , education , fluid dynamics , sound waves , brain waves , light waves etc. I started one in an art section and another in a brain science section . I'm going to keep those going but I wanted to do one with a wider scope using all three . Mind , physics and art etc.. I guess I should start it in the physics pearltree .
Be great to have you on board ! ;-) Your input will be greatly appreciated ! Especially on sorting out the flow , structure of categories . by mirlen101 Mar 16

Love the wind veils of Ned Kahn - very specky! It's a great direction to take a Pearltree on Wave Theory . . . the curatorial nature of this application must be dynamic for its full effect. I'll look forward to your new Pearltree and hope I can Team Up on it. I'll provide a branch on Solitons. by pauljacobson Mar 16

I have wave theory pearltrees in at least 3 separate sections . There's sound waves , fluid waves, particle waves , light waves , gravity waves, art based waves ( like VFL , video feedback loops ). The list keeps expanding out and cross linking . Wave theory is getting to be way more popular in research . Really amazing things coming out of it . Especially brain wave research ! It is mind blowing stuff ! ;-)
I'm going to have to start a new wave theory pearltree just to tie it all together ! by mirlen101 Mar 14

Hi dmoton - this is fantastic! The beauty of mathematics comes to the fore in complexity. I have picked this pearl for continuing reference. Back in the 90s I was very proud of my computer graphics in Photoshop of scenes underwater back lit by rays of light (and ripple effects). All algorithms. by pauljacobson Mar 14
