"Nevertheless, the fact is that there is nothing as dreamy and poetic, nothing as radical, subversive, and psychedelic, as mathematics. It is every bit as mind blowing as cosmology or physics… and allows more freedom of expression than poetry, art, or music… Mathematics is the purest of the arts, as well as the most misunderstood."(Paul Lockhart via Nikki Graziano)
In this series titled Found Functions, New York photographer Nikki Graziano superimposes graphically-rendered functions on photos of objects and spaces in nature. The images are elegant, poetic reminders of the inextricable relationship between the natural beauty we see every day and the conceptual possibilities of math and science. While art bears a kind of mathematical skeleton, mathematics reveals its artistic applications.
