“Nature by Number” and Other Movies

By Luphil

Here are some beautiful animated movies by the Spanish artist Cristóbal Vila. The first one, Nature by Number, is inspired by numbers, geometry and nature . You find more information about it on his website of Etereastudios. There he writes:

“Artists and architects have used since ancient times many geometrical and mathematical properties: we could take some examples simply by observing the refined use of the proportions by architects from Ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome or other Renaissance artists like Michelangelo, Da Vinci or Raphael.
But what is more surprising for me is that many of these properties and mathematical developments are also present in Nature. We could find countless cases, but I wanted to refer only three of them on this short animation: The Fibonacci Series and Spiral / The Golden and Angle Rations / The Delaunay Triangulation and Voronoi Tesselations.”

Cristobál Vila has realised other fantastic videos, for example Isfahan, an animated film inspired by Persian architecture:

or “Snakes“, an animated film based on a woodcut of M. C. Escher

or the video “Fallingwater“, an animated film about a house designed by the American architect Frank Lloyd Wright in 1935. The construction began in 1936 and was completed in 1939.

In Cristobál Vila’s blog I found the link to another artist, Todd McLellan. Please go to the page >> New Work. It is about “Disassembling” machines like computers and rearranging the details to an aesthetic ensemble. Enjoy!
