Concepts of Visual Logic

This is the new working title after “Universe of Geometries.” Now on page  200 and  have  continued to add new material to Neolithic, Greek & Pythagorean, Celtic, and Islamic sections. Have more or less completed the Shape Changing Polyhedra section but still have more to add to the Dynamic Close-Packing Sphere section. The latest sectionContinue reading Concepts of Visual Logic

A Universe Of Geometries

Am now 110 pages into my new book, A Universe Of Geometries,”  with about 200 pages to go. I aim to complete by the end April. The book is content rich, packed with info, and intended as a course, and source, book for architectural and design students, musicians, artists, structural engineers, mathematicians, scientists and thoseContinue reading A Universe Of Geometries

Nancy Stetson’s Art Studio, Boulder, Colorado

We went to visit an old friend of mine, Nancy Stetson, in Boulder, Colorado, two weekends ago. About thirty-five years ago Nancy asked me if I would design an art studio, to be built on the foothills just above Boulder. This I did using one of the geometries that I had developed and that generatedContinue reading Nancy Stetson’s Art Studio, Boulder, Colorado

The Geomorph Exhibition at the Leonardo

The “Geomorph – When Mathematics Meets Art Everything Changes,” at the Leonardo in SLC was very successful with lots of visitors. The exhibition was organized in four sections: 1. Geometry Through Time; 2. Dynamic Sphere Geometry; 3. Shape Changers; and 4. Images and Altair Designs. The workshops also turned out to be a great success withContinue reading The Geomorph Exhibition at the Leonardo

Geomorph PCTV interview

Links for last weeks PCTV interview, “Geomorph – Everything Changes When Mathematics meets Art”: Part 1 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RZBLr-qUrqo Part 2 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vnFfnExZNZo Think that my “jargon” is slightly better in the KPCW interview on http://kpcw.org/2012/09/the-mountain-life-sept-12-2012/.  Hope to see you next month at the Leonardo!

KPCW – Talking about Geomorph and about the process of invention

Appeared on KPCW this morning to talk about my upcoming exhibition, workshops, and residency, at the Leonardo, in Salt lake City – Utah’s Creative Science and Technology Museum. If you’d like to hear the broadcast please visit: http://kpcw.org/2012/09/the-mountain-life-sept-12-2012/. We talked about my experience as an inventor, and what it takes to be one, but, primarily, weContinue reading KPCW – Talking about Geomorph and about the process of invention

The Leonardo: Everything Changes When Math Meets Art

The “Geomorph,” exhibition date approaches and I’ll be building shape-changing geometrical structures; preparing large high definition LCDs, to display animations of new and ancient geometries, setting up an interactive program designed as a visual and geometrical game of logic; printing out posters that show the geometries and the mathematics behind them, and collecting materials soContinue reading The Leonardo: Everything Changes When Math Meets Art

The Leonardo, Salt Lake City. When Math Meets Art Everything Changes

Do you want to think about geometry in a whole new way? Explore ideas and create amazing designs and dynamic 3D structures? I’ll be presenting old and new geometries that create everything from labyrinths to moon bases at The Leonardo in Salt Lake City, Utah, during October, 2012. The presentation will take the form of a small exhibition/workshop of high-definition animations, 3D structures thatContinue reading The Leonardo, Salt Lake City. When Math Meets Art Everything Changes

Creative Geometry of Close Packing Spheres

I first developed the Dynamic Sphere Geometry in the late sixties; where spheres transform from one close-packing relationship to another, usually in finite sequences. The geometry intrigued me because most of the sphere arrangements generated had never been seen before and were unique. Since first presenting the Dynamic Sphere Geometry, in the early seventies, IContinue reading Creative Geometry of Close Packing Spheres

Labyrinth “Keys”

  In my first iBook title, “Labyrinths,” published by Apple, you’ll find a proposition that “Keys,” were used to design labyrinths of all sorts, from Neolithic to Medieval times. The “Labyrinths,” title is part of the “Geometry Through Time,” series, that I have been working on, where I explore the geometrical systems used by pastContinue reading Labyrinth “Keys”
