Math and Art
 
 
Math and Art
creativity comes in many forms and sometimesscientists are artists, and artists are mathematicians!
 –Scientists
are
creative
It takes aesthetics and logic to be good at complex problem solving“Seeing” intricate relationships in numbers and data takes inner vision that is a creative function
 –Learning how to be creative in the sciences is whatdifferentiates a good scientist from a merely adequate one –Mathematics is not just about formulas and logic, but aboutpatterns, symmetry, structure, shape and beauty
 
 
Math and Art: Aesthetics
Geometry affects the human psyche
 –Mathematical relationships affect our perceptions
Wavelength - the mathematical property of light and sound – it’saround us everywhere
 –Harmonics of colors – the basis of all color theory –Harmonics of sound – the basis of all music theory
Shapes:
 –Pyramids - power, strength –Spirals - dizzy, vertigo, movement –Lines - sharpness, suddenness –The use of shapes (math/geometry) in art allows the artist to controlthe viewing perspective, or ‘space’ of the viewer 
By taking advantage of our brain’s pre-wiredconcepts of our environment, artists selectively use(and abuse) geometry to force the viewer into acertain perspectiveJust because artist aren’t aware that they are usingmath doesn’t mean they aren’t.
