The Calculated Madness of Salvador Dali's Mathematical Life: An analysis

"The artist’s interest in nuclear physics became more apparent in his art following the detonation of the atomic bomb in August 1945. It 'opened up a mysterious world where a new dimension of reality and matter was possible. Intrigued by the idea that matter is made of tiny particles, he began to paint his own imagery as if it was disintegrating into multiple atoms that floated into space.'”

The deeply intellectual relationship between mathematician and artist is unsurprising, but one may not instinctively associate it with Dalí.

The Maya (and the Aztecs) used a vigesima or base-20 notational system for representing real numbers, as that is the total number of fingers and toes that people could easily count on.

How A. G. Bell Spent His Summers Hanging Out In Nova Scotia and Flying Kites In the Name of Science

“He goes up there on the side of the hill on sunny afternoons and with a lot of thing-ma-jigs fools away the whole blessed day, flying kites, mind you. He sets up a blackboard and puts down figures about these kites and queer machines he keeps bobbing around in the sky. Dozens of them he has, all kinds of queer shapes, and the kites are but poor things God knows! I could make better myself.” — Comments of a boatman in Baddeck, Nova Scotia, on the tetrahedral-kite experiments of Alexander Graham Bell

Blast from the past!

The Voynich Manuscript - coolest art mystery of ALL TIME.

We don't know what the text says, who wrote it, or why, but it is believed to have been written in Central Europe (at the end of the 15th or) during the 16th century.

The manuscript, named after the Polish-American antiquarian bookseller Wilfrid M. Voynic, is described as a magical/scientific text.

Nearly every page contains botanical, figurative, and astrological ink drawings made with vibrant washes in various shades of green, brown, yellow, blue, and red!
