The Kid Should See This

FORMS IN NATURE: Understanding Our Universe

In an animation that hearkens back to the work of illustrator Charley Harper, Chromosphere intertwines humanity’s scientific achievements with the wonders of the natural world: FORMS IN NATURE: Understanding Our Universe. From director and designer Kevin Dart:

The genesis of this idea is just a feeling of wonder that a lot of us remember from childhood visits to the science museum or from sitting in a classroom watching the space shuttle launch.

We wanted to make something that would evoke those same kind of feelings when you watched it — a sense of awe and inspiration at the beauty of our world as well as mankind’s incredible scientific achievements. There was also an idea I was thinking about for a long time about how science and nature can’t really be separated from each other: science is all based on observations of things in nature. So if you just look at the world around you, you can see the science in action everywhere.
