Exploring physics through visual art is my goal. I aim for the viewer to be confused, intrigued, or simply say, “cool.” Once people can let their guard down with a visual experience, they can open up to the beauty in the physics that inspires the artwork.
“Fluid Sphere” uses computer-simulated fluid dynamics, along with ray-traced illumination to form an immersive experience for the viewer. As the sphere spins, the audience may observe the three-dimensionality of the otherwise 2D video. It allows the brain to focus on the form of the blobs, and truly enjoy the behaviors of fluids in motion.
