Iterative method is a term in computational mathematics—in the process of finding the root of an equation, iterative method generates successive approximate solutions. Digital artist Leonardoworks believes math and physics could explain human life, perception, and “even the feelings we cannot quantify, like love, that goes beyond time and space dimensions.” He created this trippy and beautiful motion-graphics project to illustrate this. The video is mesmerizing, and the lady-computer voice adds to its hypnotic vibe. Leonardoworx is represented by Machas, a creative consultancy based in London.
