Stare into the abyss of a rotating black hole with the built-in LED fixture
The universal laws of flow and repetitive dreaming inspire Jesse Wollstone's latest work. And you wake up frightened. (Who does not wake up frightened?) According to the artist, such dreams always remind him of" the wonderful splendor of nature. Now, Wolston is turning that emotional experience into a new multimedia installation called The Dynamics of Flow — part of an integrated LED show launching later this week at Art Basel Beach Miami. The result: NFT too.

The second #NFT, released on the 28th, will be part of an integrated LED installation made for Basel Art Week. All my life, I had the same dream, I encountered a black hole and fell into it. This installation and NFT shows my experience. Ic

Wolston has always combined his artwork with his love of science with the goal of "renewing the text." Art visually and visually. "I see scientists as wonderful magicians at understanding the world," he told Ars, with voice/music. "I consider myself someone who loves to express the laws of the world and what it means to be human." He's worked with Cornell University astrophysicists hunting for exoplanets, for example, and wrote dance music inspired by research from Washington State University on Greenland glacier dynamics. In recent years, his focus has been on building large installations that combine sound and image in interesting ways.

A few years ago, Woolston created an art installation for the Museum of the Moving Image in New York City. With Levi Patel using touch technology. The technology is called "Music: Impossible" (M:NI), and I wrote about it in 2018. M:NI is designed to provide a "vibrating" concert experience for deaf and mute users.

It includes two battery-operated wristbands, two ankle straps, and a brace that rests on the back and shoulders. The device connects directly to the venue's audio system and sends electrical pulses (along with colored LED lights) related to different music tracks to sensors on the skin. The skin is a weak frequency detector. It can only detect between 10 Hz and 1000 Hz, while our ear can hear frequencies above 20,000 Hz. But the skin is very sensitive to changes in density and amplitude, and that's what the M:NI system uses.

To install the MMI - titled Re-frame - Woolston and Patel clothing used the M:NI label for a touch that could be worn by a completely deaf audience. "It allowed them to feel the music through their bodies," Woolston said. "I understand sound, I understand wavelengths and vibrations, and how our ears interpret these things." "The point is how we perceive sound using technology."

Recently, Woolston has drawn particular inspiration from physical turbulence: sudden, sudden movements in air or water, usually with whirlpools and whirlpools. . One of his facilities examines color theory by visualizing the three-dimensional fluid dynamics of a Monet seascape. The other piece includes a 3D fluid flow physics simulation, this time inspired by Vincent Van Gogh's most famous painting, Starry Night.

#vangoghinspiresjessewoolston: "Inspired by the way we perceive and depict Van Gogh's turbulence in the Night Star, this piece expresses what he imagines through simulating physics, and this exercise also redefines how we experience this natural law of turbulent flow through art.

From an aesthetic point of view, people have long noticed the turbulent nature of Van Gogh's colorful swirls and swirls. Ed 2014 on how Van Gogh's style in Starry Night allows a painter to display the movement of light in water or in the twinkling of stars.Because the eye is more sensitive to changes in light intensity (a feature called luminosity) than a change of color.

But there's also a science of the difficulty behind this association.NASA released a 2004 Hubble Space Telescope image of turbulent swirls of dust clouds moving around a giant star, noting that the "light echo" is reminiscent of starry night. Two years later, a group of physicists from Spain, Mexico, and the Kingdom of A mathematical analysis of the painting concluded that it had the same turbulent properties as particle clouds (the birthplace of real stars) - perhaps reflecting the turbulent state of the artist's mind. when creating it. In the 1940s, a Russian physicist named Andrei Kolmogorov predicted a mathematical relationship (now known as the Kolmogorov scale) between how flow velocity fluctuated over time and the rate of energy loss. There will be a title for friction. . That is, some turbulent currents show energy cascades, where the large eddies transfer some of their energy to smaller eddies. The smaller eddies, in turn, transfer some of their energy to smaller eddies, creating a similar pattern on many scales of spatial volume.

Color theory continues with the visualization of the Monet Sea landscape. I see nature as an art in itself, and to create a new lens that regroups these forces into an integrated piece of architecture that allows space to understand the power and beauty of the natural world and how we compare.

As described in an article sent to arXiv Physics, an international team of physicists is discovering how the brightness changes between two pixels in digital images to measure several elements. Van Gogh drawings The researchers calculated the probability that two pixels at the same distance have the same luminosity. They found evidence of something very close to the Kolmogorov scale, not only in Starry Night, but also in two other paintings from Van Gogh's life: Wheat Field with Crows and Road with Rice and Stars (both painted in 1890). In). The arXiv 2019 article was written by alumni of the Australian National University in Canberra. By selecting a square in the sky from a digital image of a starry night, they were able to create 2D maps with three "channels" of different colors. Then they calculated the two-dimensional energy spectrum. They also found evidence of chaotic scaling in Starry Night. But while the previous team had found the Kolmogorov scale — the ultrasonic turbulence underlying convective currents in stars as well as Earth's atmosphere — the two Australians were in supersonic turbulence.
