Vision Under the Influence of Math
Here is a pic from the Flickr photo group called "Everything's Geometery". It is a continuous stream of people posting photos that reflect a geometric/mathematical aesthetic. I'm not sure what that means. Maybe clean lines. Traditional figures. Order. I'll ask Carianne later. I do know that the photos tend to be similar to the types of visuals that arrest me as I go through a day. One of the most common photos types in this stream involves stairs, particularly the play of shadow on stairs. I'm not sure why that is so powerful, but if you have ever stopped to admire a staircase climb the side of a building, you might be a math geek.
