Note:These pages make extensive use of the latest XHTML and CSS Standards. They ought to look great in any standards-compliant modern browser. Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

From the Art vs Science Desk

Yesterday, I gave a lecture to Samantha Krukowski’s Film class on Time. We talked about Relativity, the Twin Paradox, and all that fun stuff.

The excuse (rather than merely being a little field trip for them to see how the other half lives) was to try to see how ideas from modern physics might inform their artwork.

I don’t know whether they got something usable out of the two hours we spent together, but they sure were enthusiastic. As I discussed earlier, neat Science can sometimes inspire neat Art. So it’s worthwhile trying to bridge the gap between the Two Cultures.

And it can be a rollicking good time, too.
