3 from 2 follow up

we get hyperselfreferential to improve our google ranking :).

I.e. this is a follow up to the two posts “Journées Informatique et Géométrie” 2006 and to 3 from 2 (dimensions of course).— Or to put it differently: I couldn’t resist to try out the software mentioned in 3 from 2 (dimensions of course). As a matter of fact the software works brilliantly on minimalistic math buildings. In particular it turned the image of the Nautibus building on the Campus in Lyon in to a Potyomkin Nautibus. Next time I try Roermond-Ecke-Schönhauser
(“corner of Roermond and Schoenhauser Strasse”).

Unfortunately the jReality filereader (I have nothing to do with this bear!) has sofar no VRML2.0 parser, so I had to use Xj3D, whose navigation is mildly speaking “uncomfortable”. Stay tuned for the parser and in particular for the upcoming jReality release!

    Don’t you like Roermond-Ecke-Schoenhauser?

    i like it! it was actually one of my favorites on the last transmediale.

    in general i find it interesting to extract information from a smaller
    dimension (like 2D) and to put it into higher dimensions. This refers actually also
    to holography and even more general issues. This play with spacetime and
    information is interesting. The questions related with that are a guiding leitmotiv
    in my works, let it be math/physics or art.

    As for the aethetics: Roermond-Ecke-Schoenhauser and actually also the
    above stuff are for me also a little reminiscence to the old expressionist
    movies like e.g. Das Kabinett des Dr. Caligari” etc..
    I adore them.
