The beauty of math

I recently discovered the work of Vi Hart.

Vi was featured on the NPR science blog Krulwich Wonders... in a post called I Hate Math! (Not After This, You Won't).

She calls herself a "recreational mathemusician," and a quick browse of her website shows she clearly has talent as both a musician and a mathematician, and injects fun into whatever she does.

For example, she makes instruments out of paper, and makes videos of them being played while alight. (The instruments, not the musicians.)

And she's a genius at explaining things in a fun and approachable way.

Here's a fun video from her blog:
