Patterns < > numbers

Seeing this video recently (via @appliedworks) reminded me of the real physical beauty that can be found in numbers when they’re displayed visually. When it’s pretty we call it a pattern, inbetween times it’s just a mess.

Much of my job – or the bit I like best – is finding patterns in numbers. They’re never this pretty, but visualising them is such a powerful way to find out if you’ve got any patterns.
