Fashion Show Poster

This idea is about being curious. Curious about fashion and curious about life. The idea of taking risks to achive your goals and not following a crowd. Also the Union Jack thrown in to represent the show being British as this is an important year for the UK. Also client requirement wanted it ‘ British’. Possibly more body text to put on yet? who knows. Also you cant see it on here but its done sort of with halftone dots. Hopefully will make a great print.

Klein Bottle

If you want to give a mathematician something to try to wrap their head around, a Klein bottle is a good place to start. A real Klein bottle is an object with no inside and no outside that can only exist in four dimensions. These glass models exist in three, which means that unlike the real thing, they can actually hold liquid.
The difference between the models and the real thing is that by adding an extra dimension, you can make it so that the neck of the bottle doesn’t actually intersect the side of the bottle. Take a couple aspirin and try to picture that in your head.

Gömböc

The Gömböc is a self-righting object, which means that no matter which way you put it down, it stands itself back up. It’s like a Weeble, except it doesn’t cheat by having a weight at the bottom, and it’s the only shape that can do this.
The existence of a shape with these properties was conjectured in 1995, but it took ten years for someone to figure out how to actually make one that worked. And then everyone was embarrassed when it turned out that turtles had evolved this same basic shape in their shells a long time ago, to make it easier for them to roll themselves back over if they get flipped.

Beyond us…

  • What is Space?
  • Space is the limitless, boundless, three-dimensional extent where objects and events occur and have relative position and direction. Generally, physical space is conceived in 3 linear dimensions, although modern physicists typically consider it (along with time) to be part of the boundless four-dimensional continuum that is known as spacetime.
  • In the world of mathematics, ‘spaces’ are usually examined with different numbers of dimensions and with different underlying structures. Space, the concept, is generally considered to be of critical importance to an understanding of the physical universe – although philosophers disagree about whether space is itself an entity, a relationship between entities, or part of a conceptual framework.
  • In the view of the great English physicist, mathematician, astronomer, natural philosopher, alchemist, and theologian Isaac Newton (1643-1727), space was absolute – in the sense that it existed permanently and independently of whether there were any matter in the space. Other philosophers such as Gottfried Leibniz, thought instead that space was a collection of relations between objects, given by their distance and direction from each another.
  • In the 18th century, the German philosopher Immanuel Kant described space and time as elements of a systematic framework that humans use to structure their experience. In 1905, the brilliant theoretical physicist and philosopher, Albert Einstein, published a paper on a special theory of relativity, where he proposed that space and time be combined into a single construct known as spacetime.
  • Ultimately, space is best described as the continuous extension in all directions in which all matter exists, and this is our final answer to the question, what is space?
  • What is Outer Space?
  • Outer space is generally described as anything beyond the atmosphere of Earth. There is no air to scatter the light, thus what we see when we look up into the night sky is a black emptiness spangled with stars, planets and other extraterrestrial matter. It is important to understand however, that ‘space’ does actually include everything within the Earth’s atmosphere as well as all of the land and water on its surface.
