Mathematical Creations

These are shapes, some of which are found in nature, like the seashells, or the gyroids, which have the microscopic structure of some butterfly wing scales, which gives them their iridescent colors. Other forms exhibit the symmetries of the regular polyhedra, their inverses, or minimal surfaces like those formed by soap bubbles. A few are models of abstract mathematical spaces, such as the Calabi-Yao space, which is used in string theory to describe the 6 'enfolded ' dimensions of the 10 dimensional space which string theory posits that we live in. The print files are created from mathematical formulas and computer algorithms in Mathematica.
