En Vient aux Maths

This animated portrait of Henri Poincare is on show, March until July, at the Institut Henri Poincare, Paris, as part of an Oupeinpo exhibition.
The animation has an underlying structure of a Petersen Graph, which is one of my current interests. Other works exhibited are similarly, differently, mathematical.
The vernissage featured readings by members of the Oulipo. Other events are expected, but not yet confirmed.

This is only about 3 seconds, so keep pressing play. It shows a cruciform mobius strip. Two intersecting mobius strips. This one orientates itself by having a hole in the base, so I'm not sure how useful it is in the study of topology; without the hole, maybe it has some interest. I have tried to ask a mathematician, but I don't necessarily have le mots juste. The crossing over of languages, the mathematician's and the accidental amateur's is an enjoyable exploration. Having a tangible object helps.

This mobius tells the story of Achilles and the tortoise. The tortoise slips through the hole and defeats Achilles.

el Greco in motion, work in progress

A painting in motion; a work in progress.

Based on this work by Berlin University professors on Digonfree arrangement minimising the number of triangles in Pseudocircles

Please excuse the poor transitions, a smooth version will be made. Soon.

marilyn vs the graph isomorphism problem

10 of Marilyn's features have been animated according to the 10 points of a Petersen Graph.

The Graph Isomorphism problem asks whether two graphs are the same graph in disguise when there is a one-to-one correspondence between their nodes... (read the full version of my paraphrasing here). I have applied the same question parameters of the Graph Isomorphism problem to an artwork and animated the 10 elements of Marilyn's face - is this Marilyn the same Marilyn in disguise?

Animation also available in blue...

calendar view of the concurrent words project, 2018

The collection is ongoing. 

Words - seen and hear at the same time.
whenever this happens, I write the word (s) as a diary entry. Each day's entry becomes a google image search. And these are the results for January and February 2018.
