* "Silky Whisperings" *

Digital print, 36.1×34.5 cm, 2006

The image expresses five-fold and ten-fold rotational symmetry.
A decagonal space is
filled with a combination of Penrose tiles from P2 and P3
Penrose tilings (kites and thin
rhombs). We can observe interlaced pentagonal stars,
selfsimilarity and golden mean
relations.

* "Infinite Curl 7" *

Digital print, 25.2×25.6 cm, 2006

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.

* "Chocolate Cathedral" *

Digital print, 36.1×35.8 cm, 2006

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).

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.
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.
The image 'Chocolate Cathedral' is collaboration with Dr. Barry
Cipra, a freelance
mathematics writer.
