Here are a few pictures suggesting the change a Hopf stabilization makes to a fibered knot. Thought I’d share.
Basically I took 10 fibers, sliced them at angle, and made half of the slice translucent. It gives a glimpse of the dynamics involved.
Of course I had to play around with the colorings and renderings.
Rendering with glass looks neat, but it kinda distorts the innards a bit much.
There are a few more on the Flickr account. Just click on any of the above pictures to go there.
