See The Beauty Of Math, Even If You Don’t Understand Math

Hooray for the beauty of math:

There comes a moment in most of our lives when we realize that some secrets of the universe will remain hidden from us–not because mankind hasn’t discovered them, but because those secrets are encoded in complex math and physics problems that few of us have the talent or patience to understand.
But Beauty of Mathematics, a new video by Yann Pineill & Nicolas Lefaucheux, gives the mathematically challenged a peek into living equations. The animated triptych shows an equation on the left, its quantified schematics in the center, and its real world manifestation on the right. The video is like academic X-ray vision, but in reality, its inspiration was never math or science. It was beauty.

“We wanted to explore beauty with an angle as objective as possible, and we thought of science because it’s something that you can’t really deny,” Pineill tells Co.Design. “So we looked further into it and we decided to point out the fact that everything can be explained with the same common language: mathematics.”
