If you are like the majority of the human population living in a first world country and watch Breaking Bad, then you may have seen work by the talented digital artist MRK. His video, The Flow (watch after the jump) made an appearance on the hit show. According to MRK’s description, “The Flow looks at the supervening layers of reality that we can observe, from quarks to nucleons to atoms and beyond. The deeper we go into the foundations of reality the more it loses its form, eventually becoming a pure mathematical conception. Layer upon layer the flow builds new codes that create new codes, each version computing a new, more complex state based on the previous one.” Read more about this project and its deeper meanings here.
