Why Did I Study Physics?

Aug 19, 2014 | Chris Heller

In this hand-drawn animation, Brown University graduate Xiangjun Shi explains why she chose to study the science of nature—and what it taught her about herself. Shi, who also earned an animation degree from the Rhode Island School of Design, says she was drawn to physics by its simple perfection, but soon learned to see the irrational architecture of our seemingly rational universe.
