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

Curiosity Rover Lands On Mars

Congratulations to JPL, and the whole NASA team, on successfully landing the Curiosity Rover on Mars; and thanks for sharing the landing experience on NASA TV last night! Curiosity travelled from the Earth to Mars in about eight months, traveling 352 million miles (569 million km), leaving a rotating and orbiting Earth, to rendezvous with Mars,Continue reading Curiosity Rover Lands On Mars

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.

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”

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
