Gods’, the SS 2014 collection of Konstantin Gayday

Konstantin Gayday has a weak spot for modern decadence, of which his fashion collections speak volumes. As does his new SS 2014 collection “Gods”, presented at the Russian Museum of decorative, applied and folk Art.

A graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts and Architecture in 1995, the designer born in Novosibirsk and now based in Moscow presents a collection of elaborate headpieces inspired by different religions. A melting pot of iconography from Christianity to Hinduism, Islam, Paganism, Buddhism, Shamanism and Greco-Roman mysteries.

The brachistochrone
This animation is about one of the most significant problems in the history of mathematics: the brachistochrone challenge.
If a ball is to roll down a ramp which connects two points, what must be the shape of the ramp’s curve be, such that the descent time is a minimum?
Intuition says that it should be a straight line. That would minimize the distance, but the minimum time happens when the ramp curve is the one shown: a cycloid.
Johann Bernoulli posed the problem to the mathematicians of Europe in 1696, and ultimately, several found the solution. However, a new branch of mathematics, calculus of variations, had to be invented to deal with such problems. Today, calculus of variations is vital in quantum mechanics and other fields.
