Digital print, 9" x 9", 2007.
The bisymmetric coloring of this nine-pointed design hopefully attracts the viewer's attention at first glance. The design is not evenly colored because there is an odd number of points. The bottom two adjacent petals are the same color, but that gives it an anchor that lends stability to the composition. Other subtleties of color and texture exist as well. The design itself is composed of one repeated element-an arc spanning 80º on different sized circles. It is the interaction of the simple components that leads to a more complex and satisfying design.

"The graphic capabilities of the modern computer provide an exciting tool with which to explore the beauty inherent in the field of mathematics and produce artwork that is appreciated on several levels. First of all, it must be aesthetically pleasing to the viewer. But beyond that it hopefully will also lead to a closer inspection and deeper understanding of the concepts behind its creation. Coming from a computer science and mathematics background, I try to introduce the beauty found in both fields and suggest that this might lead to a deeper insight and appreciation of each."
