Math Photo: Anamorphic Art

Published by patrick honner on

At the Bridges Math and Art Conference, I was exposed to a wealth of fascinating mathematical and artistic ideas, like these anamorphic images by Jan W. Marcus.

The challenge for the artist is to produce an image on a flat surface that will appear rectangular when viewed on the surface of the cylinder.  My mind swirls with thoughts of vector projections and polar coordinates when I view these images.

Not to be outdone, Francesco De Comite created a three-dimensional curved sculpture that projects to a polyhedron on the surface of a sphere!
