A composition based on the interplay of six Penrose thick rhombs produces a
quasicube

filled with various geometic shapes and expresses perceptual instability.

The image represents the behavior of mathematical feedback loops, and more

particularly the iteration of a complex function. The figure is our rendition
of a

visually interesting quartic variant of a Ushiki Phoenix Julia set. As with
other fractals,

the image exhibits a wealth of detail upon successive magnifications.

The image ‘Infinite Curl 7’ has been made in collaboration with
Dr. Clifford Pickover,

the author of more than thirty books about mathematics, art, and science.

Luck of the draw: a triangulation of the square in 12 steps. The first step
draws a

diagonal (later smoothed to a curve). At each subsequent step, one triangle
is chosen at

random and one of its three medians drawn at random (with two more smoothings
for

aesthetic purposes).

The image ‘Chocolate Cathedral’ is collaboration with Dr. Barry
Cipra, a well known

freelance mathematics writer based in Northfield, Minnesota.

Hexagonal symmetry of a snowflake combined with a fractal origin of growth in
living

organisms expresses the symbiosis of geometrical and organic in Cosmos.

The implicit decagon constitued of five smaller decagons expresses tenfold and
fivefold

rotational symmetry. The image where golden heart-like shapes are exposed shows
the

richness of relations between the decagons, pentagonal stars, Penrose rhombs,
kites and

darts with the golden ratio used several times as a scale factor.

freelance artist.

"Matjuška Teja Krašek holds a B.A. degree in painting from Arthouse
- College for

Visual Arts, Ljubljana, and is a freelance artist who lives and works in Ljubljana,

Slovenia.

Her theoretical as well as practical work is especially focused on symmetry
as a linking

concept between art and science, on filling a plane with geometrical shapes,
especially

those constituting Penrose tilings. The author's interest is focused on the
shapes' inner

relations, on the relations between the shapes and between them and a regular
pentagon.

Krasek’s artworks also illustrate certain properties as golden mean relations,

selfsimilarity, fivefold symmetry, Fibonacci sequence, inward infinity and perceptual

ambiguity. She employs contemporary computer technology as well as classical
painting

techniques.
