A whole new way of thinking is needed as artists and directors wrap their minds around the problems endemic in using new augmented and virtual reality technology for story-telling and artistic expression. Maybe Einstein can help!
Join Thad Roberts, the author of Einstein’s Intuition: Visualizing Nature in Eleven Dimensions, for an interactive presentation about the questions that have inspired the greatest revolutions in scientific thought and an exploration of the phenomena in modern physics that cry out for further revolutions in our understanding.
Then sail to a new isle of thought as we explore a model attracting modern interest (pilot wave theory), which offers a deterministic interpretation of quantum mechanics and a return to scientific realism. Discover how treating the vacuum as a superfluid engenders it with a richer (eleven dimensional) geometry, which dynamically (and deterministically) gives rise to quantum mechanical phenomena and recasts our understanding of light, matter, forces, wave-particle duality, quantum tunneling, and state vector reduction.
Thad Robert’s prior book, Sex on the Moon: The Amazing Story Behind the Most Audacious Heist in History gives us an idea of the sort of presentation we might hear from this fascinating speaker.
Varun Shetty, VR Lead at the New York Times will interview Thad and lead the discussion about how Einstein’s theories could be used to crack the code for creating compelling VR content, a tech holy grail that even leading VR director Chris Milk from Here be Dragons would agree has been elusive.
Please come, and invite your friends! We would love to see you for this last event of the season until September.
