Rinus Roelofs

Monday 6 June 2005

Rinus Roelofs is an artist. He’s taken up where Escher left off, combining mathematical forms in unexpected ways to produce objects and images with both subtle order and extraordinary beauty.

I found him in a footnote to a paper on orderly tangles. I got started down the whole thread because I’ve been playing with a tangle ball I found in my son’s room. It looks like this dog toy.

Very cool. "A little bridge between
M.C. Escher and Leonardo da Vinci" is also interesting... thanks for the link
