Mathematical Imagery

The American Mathematical Society has a section of its website devoted to the connection between mathematics and art, entitled Mathematical Imagery, which contains images of artworks from almost two dozen art exhibits. Visitors will find a quote on the right side of the homepage by G.H. Hardy that describes mathematicians and their relation to artists, as such: "A mathematician, like a painter or poet, is a maker of patterns. If his patterns are more permanent than theirs, it is because they are made with ideas." Visitors will likely be impressed by the works of art from the 2011 Mathematical Art Exhibition in New Orleans at the Joint Mathematics Meetings. The piece entitled "Gaussian Wave Packet Sculpture" looks like mid-century modern furniture design. Visitors won't want to miss the piece entitled "MacDuff's Shield" which combines Shakespeare's Macbeth with the Mandelbrot set. Finally, visitors interested in seeing a piece that looks like a deconstructed watermelon, will want to check out "Flora #1 (time slice).
