Postscript programming (archival computer print0, 17" x 27", 2006.

This print is an illustration of one of the 184 discrete anisotropic space groups,
(6_{1}3_{1}2_{1}) in the Conway-Thurston fibrefold notation
(international crystallographic number 169); the image was created directly
through postscript programming, for the forthcoming book "The Symmetries
of Things", coauthored with John H. Conway and Heidi Burgiel.

" For my entire mathematical career, I have been interested visualizing
mathematical ideas, making them direct and tangible. Though as seduced by abstraction
as any other mathematician, I am drawn to ideas that can be touched and realized.
We are entering a golden age of mathematical illustration, as this exhibit shows;
I feel lucky to be just the right age to have begun my craft using only hand-held
tools, but to master it using the computer. The forthcoming book 'The Symmetries
of Things', coauthored with John H. Conway and Heidi Burgiel includes over 1000
images, created using several different proprietary software tools."

This illustrates the discrete group 32x, in the Conway-Thurston orbifold notation;
the image was created from a scan of the artist's foot, then manipulated within
Mathematica, for the forthcoming book "The Symmetries of Things",
coauthored with John H. Conway and Heidi Burgiel.
