Star Birth

Print, 2007. Keywords: aesthetic explorations, math, print, software

star-birth-featured

The rhythmic, celestial forms resemble the Eagle Nebula, where stars are born, but this image comes from a virtual mathematical world that I explore using the computer and custom software.

Art and mathematics – the right brain and the left – are inextricably linked in this work, which depends on mathematics, yet simultaneously illuminates and unravels its beauty.
