The 4 minute looped animation ‘Some Similar Structures’ looks
at a variety of structures across the universe which share similar
forms but may be seperatede by light years or hugely differing
scales. Some of the structures are observed whilsty others are
as yet theoretical but none of them can be observed directly with
the naked eye.
This work is part of a series of work (Quantum Questions
for Dummies) being made in consultation with astronomers
from Armagh Observatory.
Through coversations and exchanges with sastronomers discussions
about one structure lead into conversations about other similar
or related structures. Hence the animation allows structures
to ‘morph’ into
each other in their transition from one form into another.
