Computational physics is a discipline concerned with converting the (frequently) unsolvable equations of physics into a format far more amenable to computation: algorithms of much simpler arithmetic.

*As an artist and student of fluid dynamics, creating my own software has allowed me to create with fluids: to manifest what is ubiquitous yet invisible, to visually manipulate dimensions of space and time, to selectively merge realistic and patently artificial elements, and to de-contextualize fluids into their very essence: motion.

* When fluid flow is freed from the limitations of physical space, the algorithm, in all its malleable beauty, becomes the arbiter of reality.

CF11_1179 began as a field of bands of color, but evolved with no further guidance save the formulae of fluid dynamics into a burst of color and motion characterized by swirls and eddies as large as the entire piece and as small as the eye can see.
