Math and Art


My new series Beautiful Equations uses physics and mathematical concepts or simply numbers as object to explore emotions and perceptions -- check it out here -- so I'm on the lookout for other artists doing the same. There's Alfred Jensen and Jasper Johns of course, but where I sometimes use numbers to create chaos, Ursus Wehrli makes order out of the universe (in one instance, literally). NPR's science feature did an interesting article on him: Extreme Tidying Up.

If he came over to my studio, I wonder if he'd run screaming from the room or stay for hours straightening up. If A&E ever does a Hoarders: The Artist Studio special, I'm so in.
