Mathematical Masterpieces: Making Art From Equations at the annual Bridges conference

One of my friends +Marco Garavaglia asked me to share this interesting news.

Artists use math to create works of art to rival gallery masterpieces. 
Mathematicians enthralled with unending fractals and flux patterns have been known to call math beautiful — but, increasingly, they aren't the only ones. For many artists, calculations and numerical analyses provide a rich source of ideas and methods for their creations.

The annual Bridges conference showcases the connections between art and mathematics. The conference features, among other things, a juried art exhibition full of a staggering range of mathematically-inspired artworks, where you can see sunsets, lampshades, and more examples of the golden ratio than you can shake a shell at.

This year, the conference will be held in Seoul, 14-19 August.

Did anyone partecipate in previous Bridges conferences?

Bathe me in blue,
Absorbing energy, I float…

Modern working practices rely on cooperation and working out loud. Here's a live example: +Kenneth Mikkelsen praised Kipling's poem If- and recognised its relevance to the modern world; I playfully reworked it for today's change agents and advocates of the future of work; then +Joachim Stroh transformed the whole thing into a poster. All this within a 24-hour period. Less, in fact.

Then, as is the way with writers, I started editing and tweaking over the weekend, and so the second version quickly emerged, with Joachim weaving his magic again.

Thanks to both Ken and Joachim. It is a pleasure to work alongside you.

"Everything is obvious once it's successful. Big wins come when you can spot something before it's obvious to everyone else."  -Ev Williams [ co-founder, _Twitter ]

When you embark on something birthed out of your own imagination and #creativity , often times people won't understand. Most people fear the unknown especially when it takes them outside of what they know or what they have become accustomed to. 

So go create, imagine, dream, and live boldly.

Boardthing: A perfect visual tool for collaborative brainstorming
Boardthing is a flexible new, web-based visual thinking and brainstorming tool that is perfectly designed to empower small teams to generate, organize and prioritize their ideas.

Boardthing, which is currently in private beta, is the brainchild of +Dave Gray,  a well-known design and visual thinking expert. He is the founder of the design consultancy XPLANE, which was acquired by the Dachis Group in 2010. He has authored two books on design, change and innovation: Gamestorming: A Playbook for Innovators, Rulebreakers, and Changemakers and The Connected Company.

Gray partnered with two developers to create a prototype of Boardthing after it became obvious to them that no tool existed that could easily replicate the experience of small-group brainstorming with Post-it notes and dot voting. In a relatively short time, Boardthing has matured into an an elegant, easy-to-use collaboration visual thinking tool that feels just right for many types of projects.

You can read my detailed review of it here:

THERE IS A REVOLUTION GOING ON IN BRAIN SCIENCE 
See four amazing neurotechnologies for "visualizing the brain" and read about the new "BRAIN Initiative."
http://www.hl7standards.com/blog/2014/04/17/neurotechnology/

"Most of us who have been in this field in the last few decades understand that there is a revolution going on right now, so these tools we’ve mentioned already did not exist 8 years ago, and some did not exist 6 months ago. The pace of technological change is so rapid right now that those of us who were traditional experimental scientists say, “Whoa, what does it even mean to be an experimental scientist in this day and age?” We have to totally rethink what experiments are even possible, and it opens up vistas that were unimaginable 10 years ago." – William Newsome, Neuroscientist at Stanford university and part of the President's team for "The BRAIN Initiative".
