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.

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”

Visual Imagination and Invention

This web and blog site is primarily about geometry and about new ways to model structures in space. But it is also about imagination and the need to be flexible with the “models” we create, whether they are geometric, or not; modeling anything from an atom to the way a rain drop falls, or howContinue reading Visual Imagination and Invention

ABJAD Designs Store Coded Messages

  I have been working on my latest book, “The Arabs,” – a new title in the “Geometry Through Time,” series. I’d like to share an idea originally formed in the 1960’s, and that I have been further developing for “The Arabs”; that of the possible use of the ABJAD system to store coded messages inContinue reading ABJAD Designs Store Coded Messages

An Octagon Design System

  Mathematicians working within the Islamic culture, from about 900 AD, often used geometry to communicate ideas, instructions, and even to send messages using the Abjad numerological system and the numbers of sides of polygons, rosettes, and other design forms, to encode words and meanings. Walking into the Alhambra in Granada, Spain, for example, is,Continue reading An Octagon Design System

iBook Published

For those with iPads I’m pleased to announce the publication, by Apple, of my iBook Author title, “Labyrinths.” The title is in the, “Geometry Through Time,” series that covers the cultural applications of geometry through time and includes the titles: The Pythagoreans, Art of the Arabs, The Celts, Nomads, Ancient China, and The Americas. The applicationsContinue reading iBook Published
