The Bridges Organization

The Bridges Organization is an organization that was founded in Kansas, United States, in 1998 with the goal of promoting interdisciplinary work in mathematics and art. The Bridges Conference is an annual conference on connections between art and mathematics. The conference features papers, educational workshops, an art exhibition, a mathematical poetry reading, and a short movie festival.

European Society for Mathematics and the Arts

European Society for Mathematics and the Arts is a European society to promoting mathematics and the arts. The first Conference of ESMA, took place in July 2010 at the Institute Henri Poincare in Paris.

Fractal expressionism

The term fractal expressionism was coined by physicist-artist Richard Taylor and co-authors to distinguish fractal art generated directly by artists from fractal art generated using mathematics and/or computers. Fractals are patterns that repeat at increasingly fine scales and are prevalent in natural scenery. Fractal expressionism implies a direct expression of natures patterns in an art work.

Mathematical beauty

Mathematical beauty is the aesthetic pleasure typically derived from the abstractness, purity, simplicity, depth or orderliness of mathematics. Mathematicians often express this pleasure by describing mathematics as beautiful. They might also describe mathematics as an art form or, at a minimum, as a creative activity. Comparisons are often made with music and poetry. Bertrand Russell expressed his sense of mathematical beauty in these words: Mathematics, rightly viewed, possesses not only truth, but supreme beauty - a beauty cold and austere, like that of sculpture, without appeal to any ...

Mathematical sculpture

A mathematical sculpture is a sculpture which uses mathematics as an essential conception. Helaman Ferguson, George W. Hart, Bathsheba Grossman, Peter Forakis and Jacobus Verhoeff are well-known mathematical sculptors.

Mathematics of paper folding

The art of origami or paper folding has received a considerable amount of mathematical study. Fields of interest include a given paper models flat-foldability and the use of paper folds to solve mathematical equations.
