  Digi'09 - Jeremy Levine

As an architect I try to understand the deep nature of space, matter, and light - the raw materials of architecture - through physics.  This 3d digital model represents my attempt to grasp the mysterious behavior of light as described by physicist Richard Feynman. Light does not travel in a straight line between two points, but instead behaves as if it takes all possible paths between its source and its destination.  As light is compressed - or squeezed into a tighter space - its behavior becomes more uncertain.  But if you let light breathe, by giving it space, its path of travel becomes more predictable as alternative possibilities cancel each other out. Feynman uses arrows to represent each possible path that a photon can travel and then combines them to find the final probability that a photon will arrive at a given location.  It is a ridiculous idea because these little arrows don't exist.  They are just a computational trick that happens to work with incredible accuracy and yet we don't know why.  What a strange theory.
