Get Lost in Endlessly Repeating GIFs Based on Mesmerizing Math

There’s mesmerizing art hidden in math and physics, and Dublin-based physics student David Whyte is revealing it for us. His Tumblr site Bees & Bombs is chock full of creations that will delight you with their cleverly looping geometry in motion.

Whyte started his blog to create quirky GIFs he’d created himself – but when he started experimenting with Processing (an open source programing language created with the purpose of teaching the fundamentals of computer programming in a visual context), that’s when his creations really started to dance.

Graphic Designer Creates A Mathematical Way Of Reading The Alphabet

Graphic Designer Creates A Mathematical Way Of Reading The Alphabet | visual data | Scoop.it

Graphic designer Mark Gonyea, who previously explored a new way of counting, has a new project that gives the alphabet a mathematical reinterpretation. 

‘Letters by the Number’ takes the 26 letters of the alphabet and multiplies them according to their numeric placement. For example, ‘A’ is a single ‘A’ while ‘B’ is two ‘Bs’, and ‘Z’ is a series of 26 interconnected ‘Zs’. 
Gonyea adds visual oomph to the series by having each design correspond to a different color; red numbers can be squared, blue numbers can be divided by three, and orange numbers are multiples of five.
