Echoes of Information in an n-Dimensional Hilbert Space

(2006, 3:15 minutes, SD, Color, Stereo)

An experimental animation with an original score, this video explores possibilities for a “visual music.” Oskar Fischinger, Harry Smith, Norman McLaren, and others have explored similar territory. This particular manner of abstraction takes inspiration from non-Euclidean geometries — of which there are several — such as polar coordinate systems (in which parallel lines can intersect at the poles) or Lorentzian space (in which there is no direct analog of a sphere). Available for purchase on DVD in Volume 31 of the Journal of Short Film, a peer-reviewed publication.
