Bridges 2013 Video with George Hart

Here is a link to a nice video from George
Hart on the Bridges show last summer in Enschede, the Netherlands. This may be the largest Mathart show that has ever been curated.

Robert Bosch - The Serenity Machine

One of my wishes for mathematical art is that it somehow ties to culture and has a strong sensory presence. I think Robert Bosch's serenity machines are a good example of contemporary art with a foot deep in Zen. This pieces are mazes with no end and no goal. You turn the knobs to move a small steel ball around the maze.
