Street Animation Offers A Stunning Take On The Beginning And End Of Life

Science gives us a pretty good idea of how life begins, but how might that translate to art? Utilizing buildings, streets and waterways, BLU offers one such translation in the above video, “Big Bang Big Boom.” You’ll want to watch this one through ’til the end: the videographers offer a pretty chilling vision of how life as we know it might end.

Tiramisu Has Never Looked This Good

Warning: this footage contains material that may cause you to abandon your diet.

In Italian, the word tiramisu means “lift me up.” But when said lifting only comes after a careful combination several egg yolks, lady fingers, sugar, heavy cream, coffee, alcohol and mascarpone, that sense of lightness won’t last for long.

If you love the “uplifting” dessert but can’t stomach its thickening effects – or maybe you just want to pay tribute to the treat in a different way – Carte Noire‘s video of a pistachio tiramisu being made is just for you.

If that hasn’t satisfied your sweet tooth, see how the Internet’s trendiest cookie – the macaron – is made.

The Most Beautiful Chemical Reactions You’ll Ever See

When we think of chemistry, aesthetics are not usually the first – or second, or third, or fourth – thing to come to mind. But that’s not to say that they don’t exist within the field. Says Yan Liang, creator of this video:

“To me, science is beautiful and full of wonders. However, the beauty of science is often hidden inside research laboratories and buried in scientific literature. By creating engaging visuals and make them available to the general public, I believe more people would appreciate the beauty and wonder of science, and hopefully get interested in science.”

We think that Liang’s video – which features a handful of mesmerizing chemical reactions – does just that. Enjoy.
