What is mathematical poetry

Mathematical poetry is an artistic expression created by performing mathematical operations on words or images as if they were numbers. One may find this baffling because it seems we are being confused about the states of quality versus quantity. But it is through the fusion of this dichotomy that mathematical metaphor is spawned. Historically speaking we believe that math has never been intended for metaphor. We intend to change that. By blending the wondrous aesthetics of mathematics with enigmatic aesthetics of art we intend to bridge the gap between the infinite and the concrete.
