Drips & Drops

Image license: No Known Copyright


Dr. Hannah Fry, a superbly cool mathematician, studied the deformation of droplets and created these beautiful models of a square droplet (left) and a semicircular droplet (right).

They have a certain topographic quality to them, and their soothing geometry reminds me of colouring books.

The dripping sound was recorded a few months ago, inside an abandoned hotel in the Azores.
