“Mathematics, rightly viewed, possesses not only truth, but supreme beauty—a beauty cold and austere, like that of sculpture, without appeal to any part of our weaker nature, without the gorgeous trappings of painting or music, yet sublimely pure, and capable of a stern perfection such as only the greatest art can show.”
Not everyone can get excited over a page of algebra or a theorem. But presented in pictorial form, it is my hope that this exhibit will prove appealing to the senses. With the increased power of the Personal Computer over the past couple of decades, it has become possible to illustrate what would otherwise be abstract concepts.
This exhibit represents 25 years of mathematical tinkering and programming on the side, as my day job permitted. Now that I have “changed gears” (aka retired), I have gathered up a few samples to present for your enjoyment.
The exhibit is divided into 6 sections:
• Julia Sets
• Mandelbrot Set
• Monsters Inc.
• Symmetry in Chaos
These will be explained in more (but not too much) detail in the blurb that you will find near the entrance.
I have absolutely no credentials in the Fine Arts. In fact, you may wish to ask yourselves: is this even Art? I will be interested to hear your thoughts.
