We are attempting to construct immersive dynamic realtime visualisations of some modern theories of quantum foam. Physicists claim that graph structures underlie our physical universe, and that the dynamics of these graphs give rise to such phenomena as matter and interaction. The first part of this project has revolved around making embeddings of these graphs into higher dimensional space in order to obtain a locally (nearly)three dimensional form. The next stages will involve finding ways to represent these forms in an immersive and dynamic way in order to make the effects of the dynamics clear.
