Cool survey!


I've seen some talks about knitting, art and matrix algebra recently:

Another one from Strangeloop:

Also, I recently learnt about https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buddhabrot. Maybe here at HN!?

Thank you for the links, Pretty cool stuff i’ll Take a closer look in the weekend.

I found this when I was looking for art representation of mathematical concepts, like this one that i created (is not a really good one, and the code have a lot of space for improvement):


The page is in português (my main language), but it try to represent the cantor set in a two dimensional form.

Do you know were i can find more “math non-generative art”?

I’m specially interested in “math profs art” but I could not find much.

I'm not sure what you mean "Math profs art".

There are countless resources around the area of generative art. This guy has a few interesting projects although I wouldn't call him an artist :-) [1]. He created a tool to approximate pictures with vectors that produces cool results [2].

This other guy puts out lots of cool stuff, including some stuff done with shaders and webgl [3].

Another very interesting area of generative art is livecoding [4], where people write in real time music and sometimes visuals using software tools [4].

Finally, just found out github has a generative-art tag so maybe you can find some interesting things people have done there [5]. These are the main things I can think of from the top of my head w/o Googling more :-).
