Art & Math

One of the consistent themes throughout my work has been that the lines of nature repeat themselves on every scale. A dish soap bottle, made to be ergonomically correct for our hand is the same basic shape as the female figure. Taken to a larger scale, the same shape can be seen repeated in intertwined branches of a tree.

There are reasons that nature repeats the same lines. It is efficient, and works on sizes from large to small.

The other night I was watching PBS, a show about fractal mathematics, and was blown away. The theories I have been playing with can be broken down to a basic mathematical formula.

More to come…….
