TORUS is a virtual journey through the abstract universe of mathematics where the powerful Torus (the ring manifold) reigns. In this first of three acts, we start by entering an animated pulsating representation of the Torus’s infinite curves.
What is the shape of reality? Ring-shapes appear in many cultures and religions, life often being represented understood as an ouroboros, the snake eating its own tail, unifying beginning and end. Torus is the “ring of rings”, looping in multiple dimensions. The form plays a central role in topology, the mathematical study of continuous and connected spaces. In computer graphics, Torus is known as a primitive – a common shape used as a starting point for artists when designing virtual objects, and so TORUS (Act 1) fittingly marks the beginning of this new age of virtual experience rooms.
