"Poincare berries"

Digital print, 20x20, 2009.

The pattern consisting of triangles and circles introduced into the fundamental domain emphasizes four and six fold rotational symmetry of the (4,4,4,6) tessellation. The interplay of the white weave and the pattern reinforces the underlying structure.

"My inspiration stems from the rich geometric structures found in tessellations of the hyperbolic plane and my area of research- knot theory. Mathematical objects can be manipulated in many ways (superimposing, dualizing, breaking symmetry) to create aesthetically pleasing computer graphics brought to life by the unusual combination of colors."
