Frédéric Vayssouze-Faure is a French animator that creates animated GIFs to visualize complex mathematical concepts. From exploding dandelions and rotating lines of text to pendulum domino experiments and retro video game style flyovers, each mesmerizing animation explores things like sine functions and oscillations visually. All the animated GIFs are published on the wavegrower Tumblr, which, as he describes it, “is a branch of the wavegrower project in which I’m focused on combining minimalism and multitude to create dynamic artworks with more than one level of reading, the first being that every cell constituting them has its own simple periodic motion, meaning regularly looping by spinning or twisting or stretching or balancing or revolving or swinging or shaking or beating or vibrating, in a word : oscillating.” The fascinating works will keep you entertained for hours while you’re also learning that math can be visually appealing. Everything is visually broken down and explained gorgeously in a way that only an artistic math teacher could accomplish.

Laguiole-Oyster-Knife-IF2

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
