There is beauty, symmetry and order throughout mathematics, if only you know where to look for it.

Dublin-based physics student David Whyte is someone who clearly appreciates this fact, given the stunning gifs that he has created for his Tumblr site, Bees & Bombs.

They are endlessly looping examples of mathematical movement, revealing hidden patterns in simple shape arrangements. We've picked our favourite 12 below - head over to David's Tumblr for more, and if you make it to the last one without being thoroughly hypnotised, then you have stronger willpower skills than us.
