“3D Thinking” Pages 22, 292: Patterns of Perception follow a methodology that has been applied through time from antiquity to the present. The first books to appear that feature “perceptual lattices” are books on designs developed during the early Islamic period – in the middle-east, north Africa, and in Moorish Spain. References are Jules BourgoinContinue reading PATTERNS OF PERCEPTION
Have updated the Altair design page with a new animation that shows the logic of how the designs are generated plus how the designs themselves can be perceived – with imagination, with logic, with creativity.
For many years I’ve wondered where the original structure was that inspired the development of Altair designs. Daud Sutton, a specialist in Islamic Design, sent me an email from Cairo just a few days ago. He has found found the original structure – a latticed window – that has inspired so many of us – all thatContinue reading Altair Designs Complete A Circle
This is a new book that has just gone to print for Wooden Books (UK) and Bloomsbury (USA, Australia, India). Title is the “Crystal Cave.” The book is full of geometric designs to color by Ensor Holiday, Roger Burrows (me), Roger Penrose, John Martineau, and Haifa Khawaja. Each author has applied different math systems to generateContinue reading Crystal Cave – A new book of geometric designs to color
Here’s a new animation from the Hidden Images series published by Running Press, in Philadelphia, USA. These are some images seen in Design # 1 from the title, Garden. The animation was prepared for the Spring 2012 Young Inventor class. The images seen in the design animated below were found and colored by different children andContinue reading Images Designs Animation
Have added a link to Wooden Books, the UK publisher of the Altair Design book series. The link connects to “Altair Interactive” – a computer App for coloring and creating pictures and designs.
This is a low res extract from a large HD “Dynamic Geometry,” animation – one of the many dynamic geometry animations created for exhibition. Please see the “Exhibition and Lectures” section of this website.
Here’s a second animation using the same Images design as before. Actually this is the first animation that I actually put together using Adobe’s “After Effects.” Will keep improving the animations and hope to be a bit more adventurous!
This is my first Blog and hopefully the first of many. I’ve wanted to share my enthusiasm for discovery and for developing new things. I’d like to create Blogs about the Young Inventor Classes that I run, my Images Design and Altair Design Coloring Books, and about new technologies that I have seen, or am workingContinue reading Images Designs Animation
