Creation of Computer Animation from Story Descriptions by Kenneth Michael Kahn

This thesis, is a piece of art! It properly addresses the beauty of mathematics and corrects the bias of it from the real world. As for animation, the idea of animating via pure movements means something connected to human intuition.

Favorite quote:

Popular views of mathematics, including the one that informs mathematical education in our schools, exaggerate its logical face and devalue all connections with everything else in human experience. By doing so, they fail to recognize the resonances between mathematics and total human being which are responsible for mathematical pleasure and beauty.
