In 2015, Max Cooper shared a music video for ‘Teotihuacan Part 2’, a collaboration with Tom Hodge that featured various shapes created by rotating 4-dimensional structures. Now the British producer is looking to implement the same concept into a new live performance.
In a recent Facebook post, Cooper described how the unconventional video was created by a mathematician at the University of Massachusetts named Dugan Hammock using a “stripped down vision of rotating tori and spheres in 4-dimensions of space.”
For those who are unfamiliar with how 4-dimensional objects operate, Cooper gives a description that might make it easier to understand: “The objects are solid, but they appear to warp as they are rotated due to their movements through 4 spatial dimensions.”
With this idea in mind, Cooper is looking to implement the concept into a new visual component for his live performance.
“I'm looking into trying some new experiments with Dugan on a surround dome screen to see if that could help! And anyway,” writes Cooper, “The main thing is that it looks beautiful and gives a little view into natural form as part of the emergence show.”
Look out for more news on Max Cooper's collaboration with Dugan in the near future and watch the video for ‘Teotihuacan Part 2’ below.
