GAIA 5.0 – A five-dimensional geometry for the 3D visualization of Earth' climate complexity
Abstract. The artwork presented here is motivated by the wish to communicate an assumed underlying higher-dimensional space grid for the Universe. It was presented in the digital 3D animated opera named GAIA 5.0. – A Holographic Image Ambience, a
big data visualisation project that proposes a 5-dimensional (suffix 5.0) geometric visualization of the Earth from the Gaia hypothesis standpoint: the Earth as a living, thus complex system. This quasi-crystallography visualisation, situates the Earth in the center of a dynamic 5-dimensional subscendent space configuration and draws parallels between 19th ether concept (cf. Lord Kelvin, V. Bjerknes a.o.) and the newly discovered 3D representation of the Penrose Kites & Darts tiling (Epitahedra, E±) which allows us to rebuild the presocratian
living pattern of the world as 5-dimensional space conforming the Poincaré's dodecahedral space. – This allows us to regard the Earth not as big data generator but its underlying space which generates symmetries in compounds of multi-dimensional spaces with create particles, matter, fluxes, cycles, metabolism, and meteorological and climate turbulences. Meteorologic and climatic features like the Coriolis effect, Ekman pumping and the Lorenz attractor are discussed in this geometrical framework from an artistic visualization point of view. We conclude that those dynamical physical phenomena on Earth can be related to intrinsic geometrical features of higher dimensional spaces proper to living systems. Finally, a gender perspective and the role of arts as tool for communication in scientific research of complex systems are briefly discussed.
