"Math the Pretzel" is a music video inspired by the Issey Miyake F/W 2010 collection, a collaboration with mathematician William Thurston. The collection was inspired by mathematical knots, and Thurston's geometric models for the topology of the universe. The video loosely references worlds of math and fashion, and at the same time acts as an homage and parody of its inspirations.
The pretzel in the video is a representation of the 7-4 prime knot. (Read more about math knots here.)
