  • Ebola Virus Particles are long and thin with a central core containing single stranded RNA (ssRNA), shown in yellow. There is a matrix protein layer surrounding the core, shown in red. The matrix is adherent to the viral envelope (derived from the host cell during budding). On the cell surface are viral trimeric spikes (glycoprotein), shown in pink, that the virus uses to attach to target cells. The virus particles float above a an undulating abstract background that suggests cells. The video cam be played in a continuous loop.Ebola Virus Particles are long and thin with a central core containing single stranded RNA (ssRNA), shown in yellow.

  • The surface area of a sphere is opened up to illustrate how the formula surface area = 4 π r2 can be understood. The animation starts with a lined sphere. The upper and lower hemisphere skins then open out to form the sphere’s enclosing cylinder. This cylinder unwraps to demonstrate how its circumference (2πr) and its height (2r) combine to give 4πr2.The surface area of a sphere is opened up to illustrate how the formula surface area = 4 π r2 can be understood.

This cylinder unwraps to demonstrate how its circumference (2πr) and its height (2r) combine to give 4πr2.
  • The animation starts with a sphere (orange) with its equator shown in yellow. Latitudes north and south are shown as horizontal red rings. A meridian is shown in green. These latitude rings all open up creating a curved surface shown in pink. This then uncurls to map on to an imaginary vertical plane that touches the back of the sphere. The mapped surface (i.e. the sphere surface area) looks vaguely leaf shaped. It is actually formed from cosine curves. The challenge is then to convert this complex shape into a rectangle to determine its area. To do this, those parts of the mapped surface that are north and south of the sphere are replaced by translucent red boxes. The remaining leaf shape thus has a maximum height that is the same as the height of the sphere (i.e. 2r) and a maximum length that is the same as the circumference of the sphere (i.e. 2 π r). These boxes then migrate across to fill up the gaps and show that the area of the map above the height r is the same as the gap below. The resulting rectangle has an area of 4 π r2. Since it is the same height as the sphere and is as long as the sphere is around, this rectangle can curl around the sphere and precisely enclose it forming an open ended cylinder.The animation starts with a sphere (orange) with its equator shown in yellow.

  • Qualia’s Parrots: a semi-abstract digital painting of parrots in a roiling forest, where life forms are created and destroyed. Some parts are highly finished and other parts are loose. As you stare at it, creatures appear in the flowers and leaves. The parrots merge into their environment and they are surrounded by coiling parasitic forms. The top right parrot is eyeless, while the one at lower left is changing into a griffin. The birds stare out with their strange avian intelligence, as their surroundings leak into them. And the jungle reclaims them.Qualia’s Parrots: a semi-abstract digital painting of parrots in a roiling forest, where life forms are created and destroyed.

  • This animation shows a very dense white dwarf star devouring a much larger, but less massive, red star. The matter swirls into the white dwarf via an accretion disk. The white dwarf reaches a critical mass and undergoes a thermonuclear explosion that destroys the white dwarf and flings the red star into space. Some debris from the white dwarf travels at very high speed to our region of the Milky Way and is detected by telescopes on Earth.This animation shows a very dense white dwarf star devouring a much larger, but less massive, red star.
