        Beakus were commissioned to create three animated films that explain key concepts about our universe, with humour helping to explain the 'almost' unexplainable! Director Amaël Isnard also designed the films. In 'How Big Is The Universe?' ROG astronomer Liz shows us the expanding nature of the Universe and how this affects the light reaching us from distant galaxies, some of which will remain forever hidden from our view.

        • The Biological Advantage of Being Awestruck - by @JasonSilva

          Follow me on twitter! @JasonSilva - https://twitter.com/JasonSilva This video was created by Jason Silva and shot and edited with my friends at Bravo Media, and is non-commercial and for educational and inspirational purposes only. Full credits and clip attributions can be found below. This video was inspired by three big ideas: 1) The ideas of psychologist Nicholas Humphrey who has written of "THE BIOLOGICAL ADVANTAGE OF BEING AWESTRUCK". Basically, our ability to awe was biologically selected for by evolution because it imbues our lives with sense of cosmic significance that has resulted in a species that works harder not just to survive but to flourish and thrive... "Humphrey refers to consciousness as a magic show that you stage for yourself inside your head, which lights up the world and makes you feel special and transcendent... this magical theater provides a reason to live, a love of occupying the present moment, and a desire to sustain it into the future, that over time has proved stronger than anything else, and accounts for humanity’s swift and triumphant success-- Humphrey says “being enchanted by the magic of experience, rather than being just an aid to survival, provides an essential incentive to survive.” "We relish just being here. We feel “the yen to confirm and renew, in small ways or large, our own occupancy of the present moment, to go deeper, to extend it, to revel in being there, and when we have the skill, to celebrate it in words..” Our desire to understand brings exquisite pleasure... and feeds our exploratory voyage, our scientific inquiry, our technological development, and even our poetic self-regard.. More: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748703858404576214771893335998.html 2) The Stanford study that found that AWE is clinically good for you, expanding perception of time, increasing compassion and empathy and promoting well being: More: http://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2012/07/study-awe-inspiring-experiences-change-our-perception-of-time/260138/ 3) Ross Andersen's rapturous meditation on the ontological awakening of our psyches provided by the Hubble Space Telescope: "At first glancing the Deep FIELD “one might mistake it for gemstones scattered across black velvet, but a closer look reveals that each smudge of light, 2,600 in all, is a galaxy dense with billions of star-fired worlds, pinwheeling in deep time. … To that point, astronomy had imaged objects only four billion light years away, and poorly at that. Here a telescope reached 11 and a half billion light years into space and delivered an image legible to the layman: an unprecedented expansion of human vision."

                The Known Universe takes viewers from the Himalayas through our atmosphere and the inky black of space to the afterglow of the Big Bang. Every star, planet, and quasar seen in the film is possible because of the world's most complete four-dimensional map of the universe, the Digital Universe Atlas that is maintained and updated by astrophysicists at the American Museum of Natural History. The new film, created by the Museum, is part of an exhibition, Visions of the Cosmos: From the Milky Ocean to an Evolving Universe, at the Rubin Museum of Art in Manhattan through May 2010.

                • Superflow - Bachelor Thesis


                  from Ian Clemmer / Added

                  Length: 23:54 / Resolution: 1280x720 / FPS: 24 Superflow, an audio-visual journey into the world of digital harmony, is a 100-page Bachelor Thesis with 12 accompanying computer animations completed in July 2010 by Ian Clemmer . The thesis introduces the discovery of the Superflow algorithm and describes the modified mathematical formula Polarflow. Quantumflow emerges while programming and developing these two concepts into a node-based particle system plugin. Inspired by John and James White to find harmony in visual art, Ian further analyzes the relationship of musical theory applied to the visual arts. SUPERFLOW Superflow is a simple algorithm he discovered in 2009, simply by setting up a parent-child hierachy and moving the pivot points of all objects to one source. Further rotating the objects changes their positions in a unique way, each child rotating twice as fast around as its parent. The initial shape and the rotation angle of all objects then allows an infinite variety of shapes, structures and movements to emerge. QUANTUMFLOW With the help of Martin Stebbing and Oleg Bayborodin, Superflow was then developed into a 3ds Max particle system. Ian’s initial idea was to combine the vast possibilities of Superflow with the shape generating potential of the Superformula (a mathematical formula discovered by Johan Gielis and Bert Berinckx, based on the theorem of pythagoras). Quantumflow was born. POLARFLOW While developing the node based operators (with the 3ds Max Box#3 Extension), Ian modified and further developed the Superformula, essentially creating a new mathematical formula that he calls Polarflow. By using initial shapes generated from the Polarflow formula and combining them with multiple layers of the Superflow algorithm, Quantumflow explores the synergetic result of this newly created visual universe. VIUSIC What music is to sound is viusic to light. Harmony is not just audible, it is visible. Viusic is the music of visual art. THANK YOU Special Thanks to Martin Stebbing, without his help and support, Quantumflow would still only be a dream, to Johan Gielis, for helping me better understand the Superformula, polar and cartesian coordinate systems, and last but not least, to the programming Master Oleg Bayborodin, for helping my ideas of combining Superflow with the Superformula become particle reality. Quantumflow releases the potential I saw in this simple algorithm. Superflow has become much more than I ever dreamed of.
