This computer animation was created using a 3D modeling and animation program. It was inspired by the work of science photographers, who make images to reveal the results of experiments or hidden realities. However unintentional, their results are often also aesthetically beautiful. With this animation I invert the science photographer’s intent by simulating physically impossible and scientifically insignificant experiments with the sole purpose of creating aesthetically pleasing and evocative images.
I chose to work with the computer to create these sequences because it can simulate physically impossible situations. My use of the medium also makes an irreverent reference to the physics applet, a Java program (or animation) – that is commonly used to demonstrate a concept in physics through animation.
