The Continuum

This page shows works made with Robert Woodley, a programmer interested in mathematical visualization. There’s a range of full collaborations (the face field project) and experiments resulting from translations between media and contexts, in conversation. Inspiration is taken from topology, and more recently abstract algebra, particularly symmetry, and its intersections with physics.

“Pixelcube” Animation Experiment by Robert Woodley


“The electron’s wave packet is not just accelerating, it’s also expanding,” Kaminer says, “so there is some part of it that compensates. It’s referred to as the tail of the wave packet, and it will go backward, so the total momentum will be conserved. There is another part of the wave packet that is paying the price for the main part’s acceleration.”
