project details

This digital micrograph photograph uses polarized light to capture magnification of the cotton on top of a Q-Tip. Interestingly, one can see the intricate network of fibers as they seem to glow in the polarized light. It is fascinating to think of the arteries of a city in much this same way, as together, they form the circulatory fabric and resulting behavior of the urban area. For the Q-Tip, the fibers feel soft as they work together to do their job. And for the city, the roads and street-ways seem well-tuned as they coordinate with one another to streamline the circulation of traffic flow. While cotton absorbs, city arteries also absorb --- congestion, travel time, and distance. There is interesting behavior in that which gets packed tightly together, whether that be the cotton fibers on a Q-Tip or the way in which city arteries work to absorb traffic. But when viewed more closely, the both reveal the complexity behind their streamlined networks.
