Caption: A visitor at the Minimal Surfaces Exhibition in Paris making soap bubbles. Soap bubbles and films may be used to visualise complex mathematical concepts. In this instance, soap bubbles illustrate how optimal surface packing is achieved with a hexagonal structure. Soap bubbles packed in contact with each other form straight hexagonal interfaces on a surface. This photograph was taken at the Palais de la Decouverte, Paris.
