The Polyaesthetic Work Of Keith Tyson

Here is some polyaesthetic work I was recently turned on to. The artist, Keith Tyson won the Turner prize in England for his work and I am certainly happy that our genre is getting more attention. The poetic content reminds me of Scott Helmes's work yet this work is obviously polyaesthetic due to the mixture of visual images. Very Cool!

New Math @ Mathematical Poetry

New Math

Craig Damrauer calls his 'Mathphorism' pieces “New Math” I would like to share the fact that he created new a set of Equational post cards. The group was edited by Ed Ruscha and quickly sold out. Here is a sample from the set:

Benoit Mandelbrot Passes Away October 14

Benoit Mandelbrot passed away this last October 14 and left a legacy of fractal geometry behind him. It is quite amazing that a simple formula such as z = z^2 + c could be iterated and produce such beautiful images. Here is a rock music video by M. Eric Carr with music that was written and sung by Jonathan Coulton as a tribute to Mandelbrot and I find it quite clever.

Here are some fractals that I made using some software called ultrafractal and many of these are based on the Mandelbrot set. What I find most fascinating about these images is that when you are looking at them you are visualizing one small but beautiful facet of the logical structure in your mind. It is like a magical magnifying mirror looking directly at the logical foundation of the house you call mind.
