A series of Animated GIFs excerpted from Meaning of Pi (1949). The video Explains how pi denotes the ratio of a circle to its diameter, shows the use of circles in art, industry and commerce, outlines a procedure by which the numerical value of pi can be checked and reviewed, and describes the discovery and importance of pi.

We invite you to watch the full video HERE

A magic square is a square array of numbers consisting of the distinct positive integers 1, 2, …, arranged such that the sum of the numbers in any horizontal, vertical, or main diagonal line is always the same number (Kraitchik 1942, p. 142; Andrews 1960, p. 1; Gardner 1961, p. 130; Madachy 1979, p. 84; Benson and Jacoby 1981, p. 3; Ball and Coxeter 1987, p. 193), known as the magic constant….see equation 1 above.

If every number in a magic square is subtracted from , another magic square is obtained called the complementary magic square. A square consisting of consecutive numbers starting with 1 is sometimes known as a “normal” magic square.

The unique normal square of order three was known to the ancient Chinese, who called it the Lo Shu. A version of the order-4 magic square with the numbers 15 and 14 in adjacent middle columns in the bottom row is called Dürer’s magic square. Magic squares of order 3 through 8 are shown above.

The magic constant for an th order general magic square starting with an integer and with entries in an increasing arithmetic series with difference between terms is shown in the second equation above.

Using mathematical trigonometric functions as an aesthetic device, Loop_3 installation is a topologically differentiated territory of force fields. With the curvature being its main structural and expressive element, the installation explores the rationality of complex shapes. The project was designed and realized by Loop_3 design team, a group of students of the Faculty of Engineering, Università di Bologna, for the 1st Architectural Biennale of Thessaloniki, entitled “Architecture and the City in South-Eastern Europe”.
Relying the immanent mathematical nature of disciplines such as art, economy, philosophy and others, the installation uses mathematics for tracing systemic paths that create their own expressive language.
The basis of the system deployed by the installation are planar elements that, through their organization and system relations, achieve structural stability and functional cohesion (the structure can be used for carrying 3D models, showing pictures from various projects as well as interactive exploration of design strategies). The organization of the elements differs from traditional structure-skin-ornament linear dependency (the tensioned lycra skin concurs to structural stability while the plywood core morphology comes first from the curvilinear trajectories and then optimizes material use).

Naked Geometry delights in twisting human shapes together to make unexpected geometric forms. I hope that by thinking about these pictures you will, among other things, be reminded of how we are all connected to powerful and important ideas – and also to each other.

A Julia set fractal is a collection of points which don’t escape to infinity after repeated application of certain geometric transformations. Here we work the transformations backwards- a shift up and to the right, a squeezing so everything is in the top half, then a reflection to full up the bottom half too. After a few iterations, the pattern of circles starts to resemble a Julia set.  [more] [code]
