— Is there beauty in mathematics?

— A lot of beauty, yes. There are beautiful moments when you realize that an initially complex phenomenon can be reduced to simplicity. And that’s a form of beauty in math, which arises from time to time.

— Only from time to time?

— Only from time to time. Often you don’t understand. Most of the time doing math means not understanding. Then, once in a while, everything clicks.

From the documentary “Man Ray and The Shakespearean Equations”, Mathematics-Computer Science Virtual Film Festival organized by Heidelberg Laureate Forum Foundation, March 22, 2021.
