Symmetry and Aesthetics in Introductory Physics
Final Project: Creating a Physics Work of Art
For the final project, you are to create a Physics Work of Art (or Work of Physics Art, however you choose to look at it), which must illustrate, demonstrate, or explore one or more of the concepts we studied during the quarter. You may use any medium you like.
Prompt: Now that you have learned something about the way your mind works and the modalities in which you are comfortable expressing the ideas we have been discussing, you are going to create a work of art that teaches something to an audience or viewing public about a physics concept that is interesting, meaningful, mind-boggling, or otherwise intriguing to you.
You may use any of the three previous projects as a starting point, or create something completely new.
You may work in any medium you wish, but bear in mind that your work must be able to be displayed in the CCS gallery,
the CCS Old Little Theater, or the outdoor space in front of CCS. If you are doing a performance piece (dance or music),
you can set your public performance times in the OLT during finals week, and of course perform it for the class Friday, March 13th. You should also
prepare a montage of photos with explanation, or set up computer+projector with a video, to be displayed in the gallery.
You need to include the following elements:
