Animated reaction/diffusion patterns by French visual effects artist Maxime Causeret, set to a track from the album Emergence by Max Cooper. To wit:

…simple chemical feedback mechanisms can yield complex flowing bands of colour — these forms of system were originally thought up by Alan Turing, and were part of the early seeds of the field of systems biology, which seeks to simulate life with computers, in order to better understand the systems producing the complexity we see in the living world.

Headphones, full screen and whatever you’re having yourself recommended for full immersion.

A distinctive, dialogue-free flat colour short by Luke Saunders. To wit:

The Fisherman is set in a neo-tokyo cityscape where electricity is a source of life for a diverse eco-system of mollusc like creatures. A late devoted scientist of these life forms has passed his life’s work on to his daughter, along with one part of his most prized catch. The other part, a mystical electric fish, has eluded him his entire life. An opportune discovery of this rare creature by a human inhabitant instigates an unusual mating ceremony, spawning a surge of life that traverses the gap between this life and the next.

Now for yeh.
