Get Lost in Endlessly Repeating GIFs Based on Mesmerizing Math

There’s mesmerizing art hidden in math and physics, and Dublin-based physics student David Whyte is revealing it for us. His Tumblr site Bees & Bombs is chock full of creations that will delight you with their cleverly looping geometry in motion.

Whyte started his blog to create quirky GIFs he’d created himself – but when he started experimenting with Processing (an open source programing language created with the purpose of teaching the fundamentals of computer programming in a visual context), that’s when his creations really started to dance.

His animations are deceptively simple at first glance – often featuring a monochromatic palette of black and white – but watch closely and you’ll see the underlying cleverness of each movement.

Just because he’s exceptionally cool, Whyte sometimes shares the code behind his creations. Find that on Twitter.
