Frank A. Farris: SymmetryScapes West
Frank A. Farris: SymmetryScapes West: an exhibition of mathematical art | October 24 - December 16, 2016
“My artistic impulse is to let the beauty of the real world shine into the realm of mathematical patterns. My method combines photographs with complex-valued functions in the plane to create images with all possible types of symmetry: Euclidean, hyperbolic, and spherical symmetries (as these act on the plane). For some works, I then transfer plane images back to the sphere.”
