Here’s something new from mathemusician Vi Hart:

She explains Space-Time with a music box and a Möbius Strip

Folding Space-Time

from the video
“Music has two recognizable dimensions — one is time, and the other is pitch-space. … There [are] a few things to notice about written music: Firstly, that it is not music — you can’t listen to this. … It’s not music — it’s music notation, and you can only interpret it into the beautiful music it represents.”

Revolution: Life Cycle of a Drop of Water

Found at Colossal.

from the page
The video depicts the revolutionary nature of the life cycle of a droplet of water and it’s cyclical journey. The project was a three-fold collaboration between myself, Helen Friel and Jess Deacon. From the original idea, through the creative development and process, our individual skill sets enabled the project to spring to life.
