A Minute Film "Gravitational Waves"

As for the content, this work is named “Gravitational Waves”. Gravitation, the most important phenomenon in the universe, is the cause why particles relate with each other, whereas as a symbol of energy, gravitation is connected to thermodynamic and entropy. Thermodynamics tells us that energy transports via arrow of time, which means time flows forwards and useful energy turns useless or chaos. Such energy is entropy. All movements increase entropy, which are among invisible particles and nature forces, so called waves. It is not only in physics domain but also related to philosophy, energy conversation and coherence. I pay close attention to cosmophysics and philosophy in my free time. I have always wanted to express the physics concept, phenomenon, and coherence among everything in the universe, in a relaxed but mysterious way. The unrealness of the mutual effect caused by experimental electric sound and audio is just the perfection description of the transformation and disappearance of the forces in the universe. As for the rhythms, the animation switches between the perspective of god and civilian, the feeling of realness and unrealness, and the result of disorder and coherence.
