Symmetry underlines our whole understanding of the universe. And the deeper we look, the more symmetries we find, reflecting our world in new and beautiful ways.
Symmetry is vital to understanding and predicting how our universe works. The relationship between symmetry and the mechanics of the universe is fundamental to physics. From Noether’s theorem to the new and exciting world of local symmetries being revealed by modern day physics, Tara Shears explores the physics of symmetry.
By revealing nature’s parameters, symmetry gives definition to the world as we understand it. It is a fundamental principle that makes phenomena repeatable and predictable. But if symmetries are so pervasive and influential in our world, why do we see so much asymmetry and chaos?

We were completely stoked when Primavera Sound commissioned us to take on one of their “My Favourite Music Memory” episodes, where artists narrate their recalls and nostalgia on their treasured music moments.
Ours was the story of the brain behind Interpol, Daniel Kessler. It was a thrill having the chance to picture his story.
Daniel loved it, we hope you too.
