When higher dimensional shapes are rotated and viewed from a lesser dimensional view-point, beautiful structural warping seems to occur, even though the objects are not actually changing shape. I wanted to use this natural process to give insight into the property of spatial dimensionality, and eventually I was lucky enough to find a mathematician, Dugan Hammock, with a shared interest in these forms of visual system, and the skills to build the required Matlab code to model them.
Here we view the beauty of the simple act of rotating objects that exist in 4 dimensions of space, as a means of introducing the concept of dimensionality.
Symmetry is one of the most Organa - Max Cooper - Emergence (CD principles of nature, and forms the basis of music. So this music video is an early chapter in the Emergence audio-visual project, where the basic principles of nature are visualised, setting the stage for the physical universe to come into being.
Symmetry is the idea that one aspect of a system can change while another remains constant. The idea of natural laws themselves, rely on the forms of symmetry that mean Album) same forces will apply to you as they do to me, independently of our position in space or time.
The principle is also responsible for music, in that our enjoyment of Organa - Max Cooper - Emergence (CD, melody, harmony and rhythm comes from our subconscious appreciation of different types of patterns i. I wanted to visualise the idea that some properties of a system can be changed, while others remain constant. This gives rise to predictability and patterns in the world around us; things follow the same rules today as they did yesterday, and we stay the same person irrespective of what direction we face or where we are.
Symmetries in nature cause what we call natural laws, to exist. Kevin McGloughlin explored this idea in the video by using simple symmetrical forms primarily the circleand symmetrical operations applied to them - rotations, translations and reflections. The animation demonstrates the beauty of this simple concept when applied in an iterative journey towards ever increasing complexity, both visually and musically.
Nature at the smallest scales is thought to be composed of something wave-like. Waves are also the basis of music, and they yield beautiful visual form in addition. Maybe we have some subconscious appreciation for their importance, or it could just be through social conditioning and the fact that they are common forms because of their natural irreducibility.
The idea seemed like a simple one visually, so I wanted to create a simple classic synth approach musically, and find a strong retro aesthetic visually to match. Tom Hodge added some Fender Rhodes noodling for extra retro feel, and Kevin McGloughlin nailed the visual approach with a great technique for presenting waves as the product of strong moving lines in a simple colour scheme.
I chose the concept of waves for part of the Emergence story, because they are a very important idea in much of our understanding of the world around us, and within us.
They form the basis of light and wireless communications, and our source of energy from the sun which creates almost all plant and animal life. Our best understanding of the fundamental nature of reality at the smallest scales is purely waves, apparently. And even the process of neuronal action that produces our awareness relies on waves of charge flow created by forces which are supposedly themselves mediated by waves - the virtual photon, a massless wave i.
There are different ways in which waves can operate, and what constitutes a wave at all, with or without a medium for example. But they all seem to involve energy transfer without needing the transfer of physical mass - like you can see in the video, the mass each particle, or a charge moves up and down on a single axis, and the wave, and energy, is propagated through the medium by these point oscillations. Now the stage has been set with natural law, the physical universe of matter emerges with the big bang, and the familiar physical Album) of nature start to shape this initially formless sea of hydrogen towards the universe we see above us.
Slowly gravity starts to take its effect on Album) tiny irregularities in the density of this huge cloud, and matter starts to clump. Eventually so much hydrogen clumps in one place that the forces involved initiate the first nuclear fusion of hydrogen into helium, and the first light is produced as a by-product, with the birth of the first star.
The gravitational aggregation process continues however, and eventually the forces become so great that even light is sucked in, and the first black hole is formed, eventually swallowing us, the viewer.
