How these artists, math is their muse
Each year, a combined math meeting brings together more than 5,000 mathematical lovers. It is the largest meeting of mathematics in the world.
In January 2019, mathematicians had a meeting in Baltimore, Maryland to learn new ideas and talk about their work. Many believe it or not – came to the latest praise in sports art.
A full art exhibition was included in the meeting. Visitors paid attention to the metal, wood, porcelain and paper sculptures.
One of them was based on a highly rugged cube.
Many triangles, hexagons or other shapes are arranged in weird and amazing shapes and colors. The collection included illustrations and pictures inspired by the study of figures, curves, and patterns.
Mathematician Robert Fathahor, living near Phoenix, Arizona, organizes art exhibition at the annual math meeting. Every year, more artists do their work. His works explore new and innovative ways to transform mathematics into art.
Fatehur himself, on the thin edges of pottery or turnip, make pottery inspired by mathematical styles. He gets inspiration from seeing how mathematics emerges in everyday life.
“I always think about ideas,” he says.
Art and mathematics may seem like a strange pair. People usually experience art through their senses. They see a painting or listen to music.
If this art drives them forward, their emotional reaction will be. Resolving math problems is usually seen as something which you think about – and you do not feel it.
But the link between the two areas reaches back in time. In some ancient civilizations, sculptors and architectural engineers incorporated numbers and mathematical ideas into their works.
There are similarities in the pattern of Islamic art created thousands of years ago, which the mathematician still reads.
“A mathematician, like a painter or poet, is a pattern maker,” wrote British mathematician Joe. Hardy in 1940. “If the mathematical patterns are more permanent, then it is because they have made ideas.
Contemporary artists continued to explore mathematics in search of inspiration and in new ways. For example, Fethiye created a printed version inspired by his hometown.
Three forms – scorpions, snakes and birds – are used to cover a flat surface. There is a reference to the design mosaic (Tess-uh-lay-shuns).
There are patterns that use interlocking geometric shapes for “tiling” or filling, two-dimensional aircraft. The artist lives in Phoenix city (depicted by a bird), where no one can confront scorpions and diamonds.
The art of mathematics is growing. For example, in the 2004 United Mathematical meeting, only 10 artists were included in the exhibition. By 2019, this number was 94. “We have more orders than Fatehur notes.”
World exhibitions, art museums and festivals organized art exhibitions for mathematics. In 1998, mathematicians started the bridge organization, which celebrates the relationship between mathematics and art, music, architecture and culture.
Each year, the bridge organizes a meeting to celebrate these intersections.
Bridge conferences include artistic presentations and talks on research in mathematics, art, poetry lessons and even art-inspired plays and dance.
The math art community now includes hundreds of thousands of people worldwide, maybe thousands of people.
Exotic shapes and four dimensional tourists
Liz Bali is an artist in Durham, NC. A ceramic sculpture was displayed in the joint meeting of 2019, a mathematical form known as the Klein Bottle.
(Named for the German mathematician he described for the first time.) This form is special because if you follow their curves, you will travel on the surface and you will end there where you started.
In this way, Klein’s bottle contains only one side.
Billy says that he has designed Klein bottles for years. I accidentally learned about size. During the teaching of pottery, some years ago, he made a pot that he did not like.
“I did not hear Billy about him, so I started to study why this figure has been abnormal, then started the purpose of making it, experimenting with different glass styles and surfaces.” I have made them since then, “he notes.
The Klein bottle is similar to the Mobis Bar, which you can make once by turning the paper curved and then pressing the sides simultaneously. “People can not appreciate how difficult it is to do this kind of work,” Fatouir says.
Paley design is as close as possible to a real Klein bottle. This is because the real Cleen bottle should pass through itself, which is interesting to think – but it is impossible to get the actual fact.
