* "Human Polyhedra" *

Digital print, 34" X 9", 2007.

A The Platonic solids are the fundamental polyhedral forms, each
consisting of identical regular polygon faces meeting at identical
vertices. So important are these five shapes that they gave rise to the
word “quintessential”. Their beauty, mystery, and connection to
humanity is expressed in these human forms.

* "Family Tree" *

Digital print, 14" X 26", 2006.

This binary fractal tree branches into two parts, each one-half the
size of the previous, and continues in this manner infinitely. Each of
us can be thought of as the trunk of a family tree, the product of a
two parents, each of which is the product of two parents, and so on to
before memory.

"Beauty is everywhere to be found - the beauty of the human form, the
beauty of geometric structures, and the beauty of ideas and
relationships. By combining mathematics, art, and the human form, these
works seek to simultaneously appeal to the viewer's mind, body, and
spirit. "

A collection of this work, annotated with mathematics facts and
folklore, is published in the book "Naked Geometry" available at www.nakedgeometry.com.
