Hello, Normies/Science Fans

As I’m getting hundreds of visitors a day to my blog at the moment, I thought I’d interrupt the Fine Art MA notes and stuff to say ‘hello’ and ‘glad you’re enjoying his show’ and ‘yes, I really am writing on my blog again’.

Here’s a short film I did last spring that you may enjoy. It’s sci-fi. Inspired by this quote:

Quantum mechanics implies that the whole of space is pairs of virtual and anti particles, filled with pairs of virtual particles and antiparticles, that are constantly materialising in pairs, separating, and then coming together again, and annihilating each other.

In the presence of a black hole, one member of a pair of virtual particles may fall into the hole, leaving the other member without a partner with which to annihilate.

The forsaken particle or antiparticle may fall into the black hole after its partner, but it may also escape to infinity, where it appears to be radiation emitted by the black hole.
