inspiration behind the work
“Pure mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas.” -Albert Einstein
Mathematics and art are related in a variety of ways. Historically artists have used mathematics in determining proportion, symmetry, shape and patterns. Math is all around us, in everything we do. It is the building block for everything in our daily lives.
My perspective is to explore an intrinsic relationship between mathematics and art, I see beauty in mathematical proofs, theorems, axioms, and corollaries themselves. My goal is to unravel and share a sense of amazement over the infinite depth and mysterious beauty and usefulness of mathematics.
“Calculus” is a piece of work that portrays the basic laws of Calculus, using a graph of a 3rd degree polynomial along the x-y axis, the artwork explores the concept of integration and derivatives that measure the area of a curved surface and infinitesimal continuity correspondingly. It also portrays an application of derivative in physics related to Velocity defined as the rate of change of position or the rate of displacement
