Two drops are interacting—one has fallen into the water and has recoiled upwards. The other drop has smashed into the first one. They form an umbrella-like pattern. Report
I selected this visualization because it demonstrates the artistic and scientific potential associated with converting fluid/sound information into a solid medium. I think that flow visualization should bring existing physics into focus so that new science can be generated to explain the previously obscured physics. This 3D print does that.
The depicted phrase is “au claire de la lune”, in commemoration of the first song recorded on a phonograph. I suspect the phrase “cellar door” may have made for a more aesthetically pleasing print.
When I look at the speech rendering, I immediately wonder if increased resolution in the 3D scanning and printing devices could reveal more physics in the flow. Could 3D imaging be the critical advancement necessary for improving voice recognition software?
shot on the Phantom 2512 slow motion camera with Professor Truscott of the University of Utah’s ‘Splash Lab.’ Team members for this shot include Mark Noel, Jeremiah Chen, and Jason Savath. Thanks is also given to Professor Hertzberg for her assistance and use of her Lab. Shot at 8,000 frames per second (first shot) and 25000 frames per second (second shot).
