Using Mathematics in Art

By Michael Field


In this article we discuss some of the issues concerning the possible relationships between art and mathematics. In particular, we address the questions of whether or not mathematics is art – or at least contains a significant artistic component – and how one might use mathematics and mathematical artifacts in art. We illustrate with a number of examples taken from our own work (the examples appear in color on the CD-ROM). folly for to need to seem to glimpse what where- where- what is the word 1 Introduction: Art & Mathematics For several years past I have been intending to write an article on my thoughts and experiences about using mathematics in art. However, as a professional mathematician, working in the geometric theory of dynamical systems, putting pen to paper has turned out to be harder than I anticipated. In part, this is because the style of mathematical exposition is so very different (easier I could say) from that expected i
