Following on from a recent look at the significance of the number eight in the liturgy, here is an example of geometric art that incorporates this symbolism. I discovered these images on the British Library website (which is wonderful resource for images of ancient manuscripts). Show More Summary
It’s been more than three years since Tarot Sport (TMT Review). The Fuck Buttons’ last album maintained a somewhat unplaceable grace — a visceral charm equal parts geometry and fluidity. It was left-field dance music devoid of utility and set alive with exaggeration. Show More Summary
Let's visit a ninth grade math class. You're learning the basics of geometry and discover that a circle has 360 degrees. If you add up the degrees of each angle in a four-sided figure, it's 360 degrees, as well. But on a more thematic level, the number 360 represents a route that might travel near or far but lands in the same place it started. Show More Summary
Don Voisine’s oil paintings on wood brim with all kinds of tensions: between flatness and spatiality; stasis and torque; containment and expansion; light and dark; tonal gradations and sharp contrasts; matte and glossy surfaces; transparency and solidity. Show More Summary
Wikipedia has just informed me that, back when the Xbox 360 launched in 2005, European early adopters had 16 titles to choose from. Typically, they're a threadbare bunch. There are sublime entries, of course, like PGR3, and there are endearing botch jobs, like Condemned: Criminal Origins. Show More Summary

When artist Leo Villareal's Buckyball was installed last week at Crystal Bridges, Leo and I sat down to talk about what inspired the work, his use of light as a medium for art making, and what's next for this talented artist.

Metarquitectura… designed this fabulous house in Puebla, Mexico, called House Lev, that relies on basic geometry that break the constructive logic of the materials used in defining it. The volumetric structure has high ceilings, enhancing the feeling of breeziness. Show More Summary
Instead of forcing materials to follow form, this product stems directly from materials, answering the question: what can one build from a single standard-sized sheet of steel? Designed by George Rice for Formtank, the 4FoldLow table is a thoroughly-engineered solution to this innocuous-sounding query – each cut and fold reflects careful consideration of material properties and [...]
PhiSix launched its 3D simulation solution today that allows people to virtually try-on clothing before hitting 'buy.'
Most front-facing phone cameras suck. It’s not their fault though: they have to be squeezed in to a tiny gap, which puts obvious limits on their geometry. Fortunately, this new Omnivision sensor squeezes a lot more performance into that minuscule frame. More »

Let’s admit it together. We all kind of suck at maths. It’s OK! Numbers are evil. Back in high school when you were forced to struggle through algebra and geometry and algebra again, you probably thought to yourself when in the hell would you ever use all those stupid theories, equations and computational silliness in real life.
