The Order of Time



















An eight minute video revealing the sensitive dependence of the initial condition of a regular clock and a double pendulum clock.
In the beginning, both clocks are synchronized—a meditation on chaos theory and the order of time.
For this assignment, we had to “design” a clock in Processing.
I was reading “The Order of Time” by physicist Carlo Rovelli and thinking about the nature of time.
So I searched for the code of a double pendulum clock and altered it.
This exercise made me understand the potential of using code as self-expression.
