In this week’s lesson, lecture and readings I have gained many new insights into the ways that math influences art and science. I knew that these three were interconnected but I had no idea just how many different types of art they could result in. Nathan Selikoff’s “Beautiful Chaos” is an example of the unique ways that math and art combine to create something truly amazing. His app allows for 3D interaction through a device to a computer to create art as seen in the video clip above. Sonia Sheridan provides an example of science and art intermixing in her images of scientific nature, such as the shape of time.

Lastly, Columbia University points out the ways computers allow us to create an entire

How each individual views a piece of art can also be incredibly unique to his/her perspective. Edwin Abbott shows us an alternate universe based on different perspectives in his essay “Flatland”. Depending on whether or not someone grew up and chose the math or science path over the artistic one, or vice versa, can make a dramatic difference on their view of art and the combination of the three areas of study.
