Math Photo: Obtuse Art

Obtuse Art

I really like the shape of this midtown-Manhattan sculpture.  Whenever attempts are made to define or quantify beauty, symmetry is one of the first considerations.  But this obtuse,scalene triangle is decidedly unsymmetric.

Maybe its lack of symmetry makes it more noticeable as a piece of public art.
