Fractals, Particles, Photons, Microwaves

"Particles, Fractals, Photons, & Microwaves" is a single-channel 3D animation evoking the language of physics, mathematics, and quantum mechanics. Procedurally animated, the piece conveys concepts found in 'The Little Book of String Theory' by Steven S. Gubser. The flow of particles represent electrons & positrons (E) and photons (Y). Particles are animated visualizing what happens when an electron splits into anti-electrons during a cascade event (an electromagnetic particle shower).

In quantum mechanical theory, a particle shower is a predictable event and suggests that an electron all by itself may have infinite charge and infinite mass, but once split, its charge and mass becomes finite. A common example of particle showers would be when cosmic rays hit earth's atmosphere.

The particle showers are filtered through a Dave Jones Mini Video Image Processor. The properties of the cascade segments are transformed using the MVIP voltage control instruments. The artist would like to thank the Institute for Electronic Arts for the use of their studios for sound mastering and video effects. Special thanks to Devin Henry and Mykola Haleta for their assistance.
