Video: Imaginary Numbers


This is a topic I always really loved at university: Imaginary Numbers! Yitzi Litt does a great job at explaining what they are, first by putting them into context of the other types of numbers and then explaining their properties.

This is an animated tutorial on imaginary numbers (the mathematical concept) that I made for a competition. It was made completely with Blender internal, and the music is "enigma Variations" from

I am fourteen years old, and have been using Blender for just over a year.


  1. Bravo!

    I really enjoyed it. I also found imaginary numbers and their application to geometric shapes always very fascinating.

    Great video, great Blender work! Nice choice of music also, a bit too loud for my (not so young anymore) ears, though, had a bit of trouble understanding all you said. But the visuals more than made up for it and explained the concepts nicely.

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. Waw! I am amazed! I'm flabbergasted! You are only fourteen and you are using Blender for just one year ?!

    I like the animations, and I also like the clear sound and the rythm of your voice. And your calm approach.

    I did not always understand the (complex) theories exactly - maybe I didn't think hard enough ? - but I'm an artist, not a mathematician (and not a native englishman), so I don't really care about that. :-)

    In my opinion you've made a very good start !
