Along with being an artist I study physics at the University of Texas, and am continually struck by the beauty of the mathematics used to describe natural phenomena. The following two pieces are my attempt to convey some of that beauty by writing down a couple of my favorite math/physics ideas. The vintage children's chalkboards that I used are a way of saying that the wonderment and awe of childhood are essential elements of scientific inquiry. In the words of Isaac Newton, "I do not know what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the seashore, and diverting myself now and then in finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me."
The first piece is called "Squeeze Theorem", which demonstrates how to find the limit of a function by comparing it to two other functions whose limits are already known. The second piece is called "Conservation of Energy", which is one of the most important concepts in classical mechanics.
