I am writing a book, ‘The Fine Art of Physics,’ about the
historical importance of crossovers between the arts and sciences and the
resulting knowledge breakthroughs that occur at the intersection of disciplines. The following list summarizes the paintings
in the book.
How to Illustrate a
usual method, measuring angles and that sort of thing,
– inverted version emphasizing lines to
– two photographs, Punic ruins and
Phoenician alphabet. The main advantage of using a computer to create overlays
is that by selectively brightening or sharpening sections of each layer, or
altering the layer blending mode, unlimited possibilities are made available.
This is of course its main disadvantage as well.
§4D object + its 3D shadow – a tesseract in which the required eight cubes are aligned along the four
extended diagonals of the central cube, four on the diagonals projecting out
the back four corners of the cube and four on those emerging out the front.
§Amplituhedrons – almost miraculous simplification of virtually
infinite series of algebraic expressions
§Bloch spheres – geometrical representation visualizing a qubit – the basis for quantum
§Fractal gravity leaks – fractal patterns with various degrees of
self-similarity have been rendered or studied in images, structures and sounds,
and found in nature, technology and art. One of the more easily understood
definitions is ‘swirls upon swirls.’
– Usually, a poster is designed to get attention and deliver a clear,
concise message. It is easily readable, with a straightforward quickly
understood message, and no extraneous words or illustrations. But
sometimes posters are supposed to make you think… by starting with
unsolved problems, or puzzles with no answers. They are intended as art.
Art posters are not easily read, may be ambiguous, and may contain all
sorts of apparently extraneous stuff. Four posters showing ‘Tangential
process of creative ideation, industrial design and invention.’
Charlene Brown is a Canadian painter who started writing about painting trips during the ten years she and her husband lived in Dubai. The Gulf Weekly began publishing her accounts of painting trips in that part of the Arabian peninsula -- then said they might consider other countries, even such exotic locations as Canada! She had written about painting trips in over twenty countries by the time her husband retired and they returned to Canada to live.
