Light-cone Universes

This is an exploration of some concepts of space and time picked up during late night youtube binges. The concept of light-cones has always fascinated me– It is an exercise in rewiring your brain to be able to imagine alternative dimensions and scale. To share this fascination, I ended up making a series of Instagram stories. 

Using the concept of light cones and folding of dimensions, I further created these images to explore what a field of light cones would look like in the presence of massive objects such as black-holes and white-holes. What I found was that depicting concepts of theoretical physics can not only be eye-opening but also beautiful.
