Split Reel Split Reel: It’s Raining Superheroes!

For that segment of Nerd Culture which longed for the day when Hollywood studios would pump out an endless stream of big-budget superhero flicks... that day has arrived. And once again, the story is "Be careful what you wish for." When a certain genre of film is successful, moviegoers will be treated to more of them -- but when they're wildly successful, studios can hardly be bothered to release anything else.

Is Hollywood's raging emphasis on action franchises, reboots, and remakes stifling cinema creativity? What's the solution from the angle of the cinephile? My guest is pop-culture critic Leonard Pierce, whose work has been featured in numerous magazines, and whose writing can be found at leonardpierce.com.

News Intense Seeing - The Cognitive Art of Feynman Diagrams

If you’re into infographics, then you probably know about Edward Tufte. He’s arguably the world’s foremost expert in the visual presentation of data, and leader of the campaign against “chartjunk,” the gimmicks and gadgets that frequently adorn and confuse the graphs, tables and charts we see online, in print and at work. When he’s not working on a new book or teaching his one-day course on presenting data and information, Tufte spends his time making sculptures.

A collection of his sculptures is devoted to what Tufte himself calls “maybe the greatest data visualization ever done,” a way of graphically depicting sub-atomic particle behavior developed by physicist and Nobel laureate, Richard Feynman. Appropriately enough, an exhibit of that collection is on display at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab) until June 26th.

CHIRP’s Dan Epstein went to Fermilab recently to talk with Tufte, and with physicist John Campbell, about Feynman diagrams, and the “intense seeing” that art and science have in common.

 

Special thanks to Don Lincoln of Fermilab for providing additional background and a Feynman diagram calculation.
