Beauty in Numbers – Pi

I’m a believer that numbers describe our universe and that math is beauty. You see it everywhere; the fractal fern, the prime-numbered petals of many flowers, the scenic ratios that please our eye. Everywhere. And so is the number Pi – everywhere.

I’ve had this film hanging about my computer for a while now because it illustrates a number everyone knows in such a way that we don’t realize we might be learning something. (gasp!)

The film is by Rebecka Taule. The music, by Jim Zamerski, is based on the number Pi itself.
