It’s one thing to have a neat idea like this; it’s another to execute it so perfectly. The quiet images, the chalky lines… all just so. Click through for the whole series.

I had a thought about something like this a while ago. When we talk about things having “a mathematical structure,” we mean something like this — that its shape or motion or permutations can be described with a comparatively simple mathematical formula.

The simplicity is the key — because it’s so simple to describe, the formula appears to NAME what’s happened in some weird sense.
