Beauty of Mathematics, Video Beautifully Visualizes Math in Everyday Things

“BEAUTY OF MATHEMATICS” is a fascinating short video that reveals the math behind everyday things like coffee, trees, and snowflakes through a triptych format: we see the object in the right frame, a mathematical model in the center, and equations on the left. It’s best viewed in full screen. The video was created by Yann Pineill and Nicolas Lefaucheux of Paris video production agency Parachutes.

“Mathematics, rightly viewed, possesses not only truth, but supreme beauty — a beauty cold and austere, without the gorgeous trappings of painting or music.” —Bertrand Russell
