An experimental art film by Maxim Zhestkov featuring the movement of over two billion black and white spheres in a series of enclosed spaces.
The physics of each animation (flow, diffusion, pressure, etc.) is displayed by subtle text on the walls of each space. Zhestkov sez:
The film is a trial to explore the idea that everything around us and inside us is made from simple elements or blocks which can be arranged in complex relationships and become compound structures. We could project this idea into emotions, behaviors, thought processes, relationships, life, planets and the universe.
Now for yiz.

A logarithmic depiction of the known universe by musician and artist Pabloi Carlos Budassi using deep space photographs collected from NASA pieced together to form a map where each consecutive ‘ring’ represents several orders of magnitude further than the adjacent one nearer the centre.
The image was inspired and informed by similar (but less impressive) images created at Princeton University in 2005.
Giant version here.
