the sound of gravity
In February 2016, NASA announced the LIGO experiment detected gravitational waves caused by the merger of two black holes. The accompanying illustration showed an accretion disk with a helix of energy emitting from the center. Since the LIGO detector is basically a giant laser interferometer, I decided it would be fitting to do my own illustration using lissajous and lumia laser effects.

this is a photograph i made using laser projection. no photoshop compositing or effects. i used one laser projector running LSX with an etherdream dac to create the stars and the lissajous lines. the other laser projector made the lumia "galaxy". i built both of the laser projectors.

That's awesome! Great, as always! :D

The stars actually look better/more realistic with those slight beam artifacts/differences in alignment.

Nice job, would make nice mural at the club.

Now I usually hear "THUD!" when a heavy object hits the ground. Is that the sound of gravity?
