I honestly didn’t think it would be more than seven months between posts (if I did I wouldn’t have left you with such a downer). No special reason for the long hiatus. Actually just all the usual reasons. Work got busier, I got more tired, and I had less creative energy leftover from working on the new book.
But this week I’m in a place with boundless creative energy. I just finished the first day of the Bridges Math + Art conference in Waterloo. There are literally not enough hours in the day to talk to all of the interesting people here. Today I went to talks on fonts, fractals, and fun with OK Go.
In the art math spirit I thought I’d share a quick visual from the new book:
I’ve been playing around with fractal genetic codes from the Fractals for the Classroom series. Simple patterns and rotations that make some interesting forms as you keep iterating. Anyone see a Canadian maple leaf in this one?
