In a series of drawings, I wrote π live from memory to draw images.
In BREAKTHROUGH I wrote π in a grid, while varying the darkness of each digit to draw an image by hand. The still shot is taken from the 1998 movie π.
Here, I wrote π from memory while varying the space between digits to draw light and dark areas. Unlike the previous drawing, I here used computer image processing to determine the placement of each digit. Erwin Schrodinger was an early twentieth century physicist who did foundational work in Quantum Mechanics.
My interest in the history of science resulted in a series of paintings depicting physicists.
Paul Dirac was a physicist who played a key role in early Quantum Mechanics. He was obsessed with the mathematical beauty of physics, saying "I like to play about with equations, just looking for beautiful mathematical relations which maybe don’t have any physical meaning at all. Sometimes they do."
My background in painting led to a series contrasting the ethereality of π with the physicality of oil paint.
