I don’t dream in numbers, but if I did, I’m pretty sure it’d look a lot like this. In Nature by Numbers, a short movie by Cristobal Vila, inspired by, well, numbers and nature, Vila animates the natural existence of Fibonacci sequences, the golden ratio, and Delaunay triangulation. Watch it. Even if you don’t know what those three things are, the video will rock your socks off.

Don’t forget to catch shots from the process too:

One time, I was sleeping and my wife decided to ask me some questions. She asked me if I loved her. I replied, “Of course I love you; it’s because of the numbers 2 1 5 6 3 4 0 3 2 4 0 8 4.” Or some other string of random numbers. Perhaps it was the golden ratio.

wow this is fantastic!!!

It’s really beautiful!

I will surely use this video in my classroom, soon. Thanks for sharing Nathan. Your blog always rocks!!

Wonderful video.

Amazing, fantastic, mind blowing !!!! loved it !! as i wish to be good artist and also inspired by nature now can clearly see the connection between the two sides of the brain…emotions and calculations, maths !! Answering all “why” questions !!

I just loved it !!

count me one of your fan Cristobal Vila

Beautiful. For some reason it reminds me of your math functions in real life post some time ago. http://flowingdata.com/2010/02/12/math-functions-in-the-real-world/

i was thinking the same exact thing when i first saw this.

my boyfriend and i stumbled upon this video and all i can say is…wow. it was really beautiful. just amazing to see how much of an artform it is. i have such an amazement with math this just made it ten times better.

This really makes one wonder – Nature, is it random chance or design?

Wow! I was stunned by this video!

Marvelous! Stumbled. This made my day. ^^

Fantático cheio de vida!

Life based figures

Wow..! i realy into math and was stunned by this video. GJ!

Does anyone know the song in the background? I know I have heard it before.

In the end credits, it says the music is ‘Often a Bird’ by Wim Mertens.

LOL…i’m tired but I should probably pay attention more often.

Wow, probably the single most amazing thing I have ever seen.

Great video! Although for the image, a+b is not equal to (a+b)/a

You blog is really amazing and i thoroughly enjoyed this numbers logic. I am a bit inclined towards numerology and always get fascinated by the logic behind numbers and what all juice you can extract from them.

Keep it up.

one word….amaaaaaaazing.

this vid made believe even more that all the nature came from one creative source. (Allah)

Thank you for the post, keep the good work.

I think it’s funny how the golden ratio is so apparent in this video, but the music is in a minor key. should have definitely enforced the Fibonacci sequence with a repeating pattern made of major arpeggios. :D

Absolutely beautiful video – seen it 3 times now!

I can’t explain why, but I’ve been seeing the number 137 for numerous years without even thinking about it. I understand that it could be my subconscious at work trying to hunt down the number but hows this: often times just before i sleep i remove clothes from my alarm clock only to see the bright green LEDs write 1:37 (at night). I’ve gotten so used to seeing that number, I can spot it a mile off….. I don’t know if it’s correlated to that 137.5 number in the video, and if it is, I’m off by 0.5 :P
