Mathematical Art Online

Posted on September 2nd, 2010 in Events. 4 Comments.

A friend of mine asked me the other day if I knew of any good sources of math art wallpaper as Google was not turning up anything very good. While I don’t have any specific sources of desktop backgrounds, I do have some great sources for mathematical artwork. Over the past few years I have participated in the Bridges Math Art Conference and the Joint Mathematics Meetings, both of which have exhibitions of mathematical art every year. There is a full list of these online math art galleries, and here is a selection of just one of my favorites from each of the four exhibitions that I have participated in:

"Harmonograms of Moscovich" by Ivan Moscovich. Analog computer originals. 24" x 24". 1968.

I would very much like to know and get in touch with people who are involved with mathematical art. This article with it’s links, hopefully towards such people is the answer to my prayers. I paint such pictures and would love to share it with like minded artists.
This work, “Wave” is absolutely great! Origami is one of the most popular way people practice this kind of art form.

Anicet, I’m glad you found my post! Definitely look at the information on the Bridges website about the annual conference that includes a mathematical art exhibition – it’s a great place to meet like-minded artists.
