Snowflake formulas, dice odds and other satisfying maths of the everyday

Mathematical properties underpin everything in our world, even if our minds tend towards noting their effects rather than their functions. This mesmerising video from the Paris-based design studio Parachutes investigates the maths hidden in our everyday lives – from the swirling patterns of storm clouds to the binary code behind computer screens.

Directors: Nicolas Lefaucheux, Yann Pineill
