'Romanian architect Vlad Tenu focuses on the integration of computation, science and technology in the creative process of his design research. His collection, Synthetic Nature, is a set of prototypes created by his holistic architectural design research into the genesis of form and space. Throughout the art is an analogy with the molecular behaviour of soap bubbles, which involve nature’s algorithms, geometrical constraints, and mathematical relationships.'
It’s possible you’ve never heard of Simon Beck, but after today, you won’t be able to forget him or his wintry works of art. Simon is an artist and is most well-known for making incredibly delicate and detailed art in the snow, just by walking over a fresh snowfall. Heliterally walks miles in the snow to create these pieces. And the part that blows our minds? He could spend hours upon hours creating one design, just to have it be covered by snowfall or blown away by the next day. But he still makes them.
Simon walks over layers of fresh snow in special shoes to create his mind-boggling geometric environmental art.
The Koch snowflake (also known as the Koch star and Koch island) is a mathematical curve and one of the earliest fractal curves to have been described. It is based on the Koch curve, which appeared in a 1904 paper titled “On a continuous curve without tangents, constructible from elementary geometry” by the Swedish mathematician Helge von Koch.
The Koch curve has an infinite length because each iteration creates four times as many line segments as in the previous iteration, with the length of each one being one-third the length of the segments in the previous stage.
Mathematical Beauty Activates Same Brain Region as Great Art or Music
People who appreciate the beauty of mathematics activate the same part of their brain when they look at aesthetically pleasing formula as others do when appreciating art or music, suggesting that there is a neurobiological basis to beauty.
There are many different sources of beauty – a beautiful face, a picturesque landscape, a great symphony are all examples of beauty derived from sensory experiences. But there are other, highly intellectual sources of beauty. Mathematicians often describe mathematical formulae in emotive terms and the experience of mathematical beauty has often been compared by them to the experience of beauty derived from the greatest art.
"The story, a dialogue presenting both sides (or is there only one side?) of a twisting love–hate relationship between two characters named Daniel and Danielle, was letterpress printed by Red Dragonfly Press in Red Wing, Minn., on Fabriano paper using the font FF Quadraat. Assembled by hand with tape, the resulting scrollable sculpture retains its shape yet remains flexible, so that the reader can easily read the story without ever having to turn the page. Viewers are invited to pick it up, play with the paper, and read the story from start to finish—except there is no start nor any finish!"—Barry Cipra
