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.
