Math and Art

Carol's presentation last week on Math and Art was great! It's amazing how prevalent the golden ratio is!

And, this week, we meet with Bryan Clair to talk about the math of Escher. What a mind Escher must have had to come up with some fascinating drawings...and Bryan Clair's site for Escher Math is full of wonderful examples.  I especially like the examples from the Moors in Spain, since I was able to go there last summer and see some of that beautiful art work for myself.
