Infinitely Flat(land)…

Readers may recall your correspondent’s respect and affection for the extraordinary novella Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions— so won’t be surprised that he’s excited to discover the work of Vi Hart.

Hart is an artist and composer with a gift for using mundane materials (like balloons) to illustrate abstruse concepts.  Her most recent creation is a wonderful animation of Flatland…  on a moebius strip.
