* Exploring the Limits
This series was stimulated by my seeing M.C. Escher's Circle Limit III at Boston's MFA at the time when I was creating kaleidoscopic iterations. I started researching into Escher's vision when I realized that his work went beyond a straight-forward kaleidoscopic rendition. My research uncovered several mathematical papers on the underlying non-Euclidian geometry which Escher employed.
The pieces in this series show my own exploration using non-Euclidian patterns developed with the underlying idea of Poincaré disks similar to Escher's Circle Limit series. My intent, however, is making interesting and appealing designs via transformations to the section of the photo which I have selected rather than being rigorously mathematical.
