Scale of the Universe

Submitted by robertgnewell on 29 February 2012

Scale of the Universe is a interactive animation, developed by Cary and Mike Huang, that allows you to view the boundaries of size from a resolution high enough for displaying quantum foam to the macroscopic view of what scientists hypothesize to be the boundaries of the entire universe. This interactive piece displays sizes and scales purely from an objective quantitative angle and is not presented with commentary. However, as CRC research often focuses on place, scale and limits, this animation can compliment our research as it provides an insightful and humbling view on where humans lie within the ultimate range of scale, between the largest and the smallest.
