(MIFF 2013, Special Events)

Director: Rocco Helmchen

Does maths have a colour? Does it have a sound? Media-artist Rocco Helmchen and composer Johannes Kraas try to answer these questions in their latest fulldome edutainment show.

Taking audiences on a journey into a fascinating world of sensuous, ever-evolving images and symphonic-electronic music, the film is structured into four movements – geometric forms, algorithms, simulations and chaos theory – as it explores breathtaking animated visuals of unprecedented beauty in the realm of maths.

Experience the fundamental connection between reality and mathematics, as science and art are fused together in this immersive celebration of the one language of our universe.
