Discover the secret geometry of beauty – the mathematics of form and pattern

In ‘The Study of Mathematics’, Bertrand Russell wrote: ‘Mathematics, rightly viewed, possesses not only truth, but supreme beauty.’ This is the idea underlying Ars Qubica by the Spanish 3D animator and illustrator Cristóbal Vila. A fluid sensory experience that unites music, mathematics, art and design, the video deconstructs patterns and motifs in art to reveal how beauty emerges from ‘geometric skeletons’.

Director: Cristóbal Vila
