Visions of Triangles Danced in Their Heads

When you do CFD or meshing long enough, a few nightmares about triangles are to be expected. But this 1966 animation of waltzing triangles is a fantastic dream come true. Enjoy Rene Jodoin’s Notes on a Triangle and be certain to checkout the article’s links to other videos.

One of the minimalist geometric videos linked to by the article above is Chuck Jones’ Oscar-winning The Dot and The Line. I’m fortunate to own a cel of the original artwork from that film.

P.S. For the record, I wrote this post earlier in the week and scheduled it to automatically post today.
