If you are aware of an interesting new academic paper (that has been published in a peer-reviewed journal or has appeared on the arXiv), a conference talk (at an official professional scientific meeting), an external blog post (by a professional scientist) or a news item (in the mainstream news media), which you think might make an interesting topic for an FQXi blog post, then please contact us at forums@fqxi.org with a link to the original source and a sentence about why you think that the work is worthy of discussion. Please note that we receive many such suggestions and while we endeavour to respond to them, we may not be able to reply to all suggestions.

Please also note that we do not accept unsolicited posts and we cannot review, or open new threads for, unsolicited articles or papers. Requests to review or post such materials will not be answered. If you have your own novel physics theory or model, which you would like to post for further discussion among then FQXi community, then please add them directly to the "Alternative Models of Reality" thread, or to the "Alternative Models of Cosmology" thread. Thank you.

Video Description

This is a methaphorical story about making a scientific discovery. Being both physicist and professional photographer I have created this video using help of many devoted friends physicists and artists, and investing all my savings into it :) This is also my first video.

Video Creator Bio

Assistant professor of quantum physics, Institute of Theoretical Physics, University of Warsaw. Professional portrait photographer (www.andrzejdragan.com)

Andrzej,

Wow! Until today, I had only watched the two other videos that you submitted, and I had found that the "horror movie" elements were too overwhelming compared to the links to physics that were suggested in the text overlays. In this video, you don't really try to make an explicit connection to a particular physical theory or concept, and I think it works much better. In a few short minutes, you have masterfully created an eerie sci-fi/fantasy atmosphere of mad science and discovery. Your video is probably too dark and doesn't have enough clearly recognizable physics content to win a prize in this contest, but I hope it finds its audience. And who knows... if they give a special prize for artistic vision and direction, you may have a chance!

Marc

P.S. I have submitted a trilogy of videos to this contest, entitled "This Is Physics", that takes the viewer on a journey through the history of physics, from Aristotle's theory of a spherical Earth to the mysteries of dark matter and the fine-tuning of the fundamental constants of nature... If you have a chance to take a look at it, comment and rate it, it would be quite appreciated!

To be honest and fair, I do not see how this video had anything to do with physics, BUT, that was some of the best quality film making I have seen in a long time! I don't know how this video will do in this contest, but my friend you have a future in film making!

Greetings Andrej,

Of your three videos here, this one is the most relevant to the contest aims, though it does not focus on a specific Physics problem. It accurately reflects the process of someone engaged in the act of discovery or innovation, and the viewer is left to wonder just what advances might come out of this person's ardent research and prototype development.

This one appears to be more pure cinematography, while the others looked more like renderings from 3-d wireframe models, using actual faces for texture maps, but it is a skillful blending of the two media - so that even a trained observer has a hard time telling where the visual elements end and the rendered ones begin, or vice versa. I hope you get to check out my contest video on the importance of the Mandelbrot Set to Physics.

You may also enjoy my performance piece honoring Zbigniev Cynkutis, who was a student of Grotowski, and tragically died in an auto accident before realizing his dream - after becoming director of the Second Studio in Wroclaw. That piece is called Encounter with Zbyczek.

All the Best,

Jonathan

It is surprising..

You have not responded to comments above, despite your high placement in the rankings from our appreciation of your video. You need only a few more similar reviews to make it to the finals! I think maybe if you had been content to submit this video alone, your message would be clearer or the impact not as watered-down by the dilution - because people only have so much time to watch any one entrant's work.

I guess you must be busy, now that the school year has commenced. But I hope your time allows you a glance at what I have created.

All the Best,

Jonathan

Can the Mandelbrot Set help us understand the Cosmos?

Very interesting video. I appreciate the cinematography that went into this piece.

If you get a chance I'd appreciate it if you gave our video a watch and rated it too!

If you're looking for a Download Free Software For Pc to download free software for Windows, you should be confused with all the selections available to be found on the Internet. Individuals who are new to this industry could perhaps discover the endeavor of selecting the appropriate website as well as the best suited program a tad terrifying at the beginning for the reason that they will not have any thought what to anticipate, especially if equally the website, as well as program they are really downloading, are new to them. Incorporate to this the chance imposed by online threats like viruses, adware, adware, and Trojans.
