    Kinetic light sculptures created by British artist and physicist, Paul Friedlander

    Paul Friedlander is both a physicist and a light sculptor, using applied sciences to create art that’s both beautiful and interactive. He constructs kinetic light sculptures by quickly rotating a rope stretched from ceiling to floor through white light.

    The Beautiful Blackboards at Quantum Physics Labs

    Alejandro Guijarro sees that blurry beauty better than most. Over the last three years, the Spanish artist has visited some of the world's most prestigious blackboards: the ones housed at the quantum mechanics labs of places like the University of Oxford, UC Berkeley, Stanford, CERN, Cambridge, and the Instituto de Física Corpuscular. At each place, he used a large-format camera to capture the markings left on the boards, just as he found them.

    Hypnotic Timelapse Videos Show A Face Of Mother Nature We Rarely See

    We don’t usually get to witness the movements of plants and fungi, which happen so slowly that we don’t notice it with our naked eyes. But these timelapse videos speed up the process, letting us appreciate the sometimes graceful growing and dying of these organisms.

          Geometrical plants for symmetry lovers.

          When we see order in the world, we think it must be some human hand that made it so. But Galileo Galilei in his Il Saggiatore wrote, “[The universe] is written in the language of mathematics, and its characters are triangles, circles, and other geometric figures.” There is order in nature, and artists who want to reproduce it faithfully spend hours studying nature’s forms.
          Fairly long, but there are great pictures.
