It’s Schrodinger’s balloon: if you close your eyes and release the balloon from your hand, where does it go? Until you open your eyes, it is simultaneously moving away and at rest. When it’s time to see, then it all depends on which universe you’re standing in. If you’re outside and it floats away, then it will probably ground a flight or hurt a turtle or find a final resting place as litter on the landscape. But if you’re planted directly in the center of a perfectly cubic room full of people equidistant from one another and gently release the balloon… well then you’re on to something. Mathematics applied to life is the closest one can get to perfection. Mathematics transcends and impacts all areas of art—from renaissance paintings to graphic design. Think of DaVinci’s use of the golden ratio, of Pacioli’s treatises on them. Think of the 20th century, of Escher’s use of tessellation and hyperbolic geometry in creating his designs. Artists today use advanced computer software to generate masterpieces, relying on and collaborating with mathematicians in a new way. If you close your eyes while looking at an artwork, where does it go?
