The Symmetry of Life

Last year, film­mak­ers Will Hoff­man, Daniel Mer­cadante, and Julius Metoy­er III pro­duced their first con­cep­tu­al video based on a Radi­o­Lab episode called “Words.” Now the trio is back, play­ing on ideas explored in a new Radi­o­Lab episode, Des­per­ate­ly Seek­ing Sym­me­try, which med­i­tates on how “sym­me­try shapes our very existence–from the ori­gins of the uni­verse, to what we see when we look in the mir­ror.” You can watch their lat­est video above, and stream below the radio episode upon which it is based. And if you’re not famil­iar with Radi­o­Lab, a pro­gram that’s chang­ing the medi­um, then def­i­nite­ly check out this pro­file in The New York Times.
