Math Is Pretty

Last week I met Tom Beddard, a physicist turned web developer turned artist (and friendly guy). He creates 3D fractals — those recursive shapes that infinitely repeat at every scale. They’re based on simple math, but they can create some amazing images.

Says Beddard: “I don’t seek any new mathematical insight into the resulting structures, it’s a purely aesthetic pursuit to scratch a creative itch. Part of the fascination with fractal exploration is when … amazing and completely unexpected structures can pop out and surprise you.”

Some of the fractals look like Gothic architecture. Some of them look like alien seed pods. All of them are mesmerizing. You can see lots more on Beddard’s flickr page. You can actually fly through the fractals and see them morphing in these videos. And now, thanks to a new app called Frax that Beddard helped develop, you can make fractals of your very own.

This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody) - Talking Heads.

Stop Making Sense is one of the best concert films you’ll ever see. It captures the heady eclecticism of the 80’s NYC scene, mashing neurotic new wave with electro, funk and hip-hop all in one classic performance. Yes, the one where David Byrne wears That Big Suit.

This song is one of my highlights, even though it never appeared on the original vinyl soundtrack. It’s a beguiling ride that I’ll never tire of. It’s also been covered by Arcade Fire and MGMT, two of the best bands of recent years. What good taste they have!

this is my first hiatus and I’ve never felt so alone

hopefully they’ll be back in three years like usual. Until then we make a playlist with all their stuff and wait. And then wait some more.
