I’M SO SORRY I JUST COULDN’T STARE AT THIS GIF ANYMORE AND ENDLESSLY HAVE MY DREAMS SHATTERED I HAD TO MAKE THINGS RIGHT
rebageling for people in other timezones who might need some relief too
Seeing this made me stop being an atheist for 45 seconds.
Thank you kinetic-squirrel.
Marble artist Mike Gong creates beautifully detailed designs inside of small, handmade glass marbles. He pays close attention to detail to get every single element just right within the round interior of glass, and each of his creative concepts tells a crazy little story.
Gong produces mesmerizing clouds of color, texture, and patterns that seem out of this world. No two pieces are alike and, as you turn each marble around, the various details and unusual elements change color and sparkle in the reflecting light.
In particular, his Acid Eaters collection features wacky little faces that have big smiles, swirling eyes, and tongues sticking out of their mouths. Inside of the thick glass, hallucinations come alive and the happy guys appear distorted as viewers spin the glass around in their hands.

36 sided polygon made with corel draw
The intersecting lines give the illusion of concentric circles in the center, but that is an illusion.
The original file is 36 x 36 inches, so that meant I had to re-size it for posting on the internet, but I’m thinking of getting a poster printed.
Also, no, I did not connect all of these dots by hand. I did connect one point to 35 other points, and then copy/paste/rotated until it went all the way around.
Thanks for stopping by.
The Beauty of Math in Science - Lissajous Curve
Lissajous curve, also known as Lissajous figure or Bowditch curve, is the graph of a system of parametric equations: x = A.sin(a.t + δ) and y = B.cos(bt)
The appearance of the figure is highly sensitive to the ratio a/b - Image 3 (3/2, 3/4 and 5/4). For a ratio of 1, the figure is an ellipse, with special cases including circles (A = B, δ = π/2 radians) and lines (δ = 0). Another simple Lissajous figure is the parabola (a/b = 2, δ = π/4). Other ratios produce more complicated curves, which are closed only if a/b is rational. The visual form of these curves is often suggestive of a three-dimensional knot, and indeed many kinds of knots, including those known as Lissajous knots, project to the plane as Lissajous figures.
Visually, the ratio a/b determines the number of “lobes” of the figure. For example, a ratio of 3/1 or 1/3 produces a figure with three major lobes (see image). The ratio A/B determines the relative width-to-height ratio of the curve. For example, a ratio of 2/1 produces a figure that is twice as wide as it is high. Finally, the value of δ determines the apparent “rotation” angle of the figure, viewed as if it were actually a three-dimensional curve. For example, δ=0 produces x and y components that are exactly in phase, so the resulting figure appears as an apparent three-dimensional figure viewed from straight on (0°). In contrast, any non-zero δ produces a figure that appears to be rotated, either as a left/right or an up/down rotation (depending on the ratio a/b).
