Jump Inside Virtual Paintings at the Barnes Foundation

Jump Inside Virtual Paintings at the Barnes Foundation | Vloasis awesome sauce | Scoop.it

Have you ever found a painting so enticing that you wished you could jump inside and explore? A new, interactive mobile application created by Drexel University’s School of Education for young visitors of the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia, PA allows you to do just that.

 

Using 3-D immersive graphics, the touch-screen app, entitled “Keys to the Collection,” launches a game environment of the Barnes’ beloved, world-renowned art collection. The app turns a visit to the Barnes into a game or can be used to explore the Barnes virtually from anywhere. Using augmented reality, users who play the game from the Barnes’ galleries can even use their avatar to jump inside masterpieces to learn about elements of art like lines, colors, shapes and depth of space.

Was a 3D-black hole from the surface of a 4D-universe the creator of our universe?

Was a 3D-black hole from the surface of a 4D-universe the creator of our universe? | Vloasis awesome sauce | Scoop.it

 

Our universe may have emerged from a black hole in a higher-dimensional universe, propose a trio of Perimeter Institute researchers.

 

The big bang poses a big question: if it was indeed the cataclysm that blasted our universe into existence 13.7 billion years ago, what sparked it?

 

Three Perimeter Institute researchers have a new idea about what might have come before the big bang. It's a bit perplexing, but it is grounded in sound mathematics, testable, and enticing enough to earn the cover story in Scientific American, called "The Black Hole at the Beginning of Time." What we perceive as the big bang, they argue, could be the three-dimensional "mirage" of a collapsing star in a universe profoundly different than our own.

 

 


Via Dr. Stefan Gruenwald
Vloasis's insight:

Maybe an alien experiment from another dimension went horribly awry and created our universe. Like, they were trying to find a new way to bomb the shit out of each other, and instead created a new existence. Or perhaps it was all too successful and rent open their world to create ours.

Eric Chan Wei Chiang's curator insight, August 12, 3:30 AM

This is a fairly long scoop that would appeal to theologist from various faiths. It provides a scientific explanation for the "original mover" of Abrahamic faiths. The higher realms of existence would appeal to followers of Hinduism and Buddhism.

Beautiful Photos Depict Quiet Moments Throughout New York

Beautiful Photos Depict Quiet Moments Throughout New York | Vloasis awesome sauce | Scoop.it

No matter where you look, the streets of New York City are almost always filled with hundreds and thousands of people. But, in the 1960's, American photographer Duane Michals found the rare and quiet moments along back alleys, inside offices and shops, and riding in a subway car, where not a single person was in sight. The series, titled Empty New York, was inspired by the work of Eugene Atget, a brilliant photographer who led the way for documentary photography in Paris.
To create his series, Michals walked along the urban streets during very early Sunday morning hours when most of the city was still asleep. The absence of people in the photographs is as powerful as an image jammed packed with a crowd. Through his camera lens, Michals found the peaceful calm of the city and produced interesting narratives that redefine New York for viewers.
