Art + Math = LOVE / by christina dy

I was a mathlete. Yes. Mathlete. I loved math, especially geometry. It made perfect sense to me.

I also made a twitter account to stalk my favorite mathematician Steven Strogatz. My photo is in his website (under the category FUN. haha). In it I'm reading my favorite introduction to Math book -- the Joy of X. Once you read this, you will love math forever!!! My Twitter is now gone, but my love for math remains.

So it's just natural that I combine math with the other thing that I love (not chocolate)- drawing.

So here! I made mobius drawings. A mobius strip has only one side. So these are like never-ending drawings-- the drawing just keeps going on and on. What happens when you cut a mobius strip lengthwise? The answer is the second mobius drawing. Try it out- lots of fun surprises!

I also made tangram drawings, based on the tangram puzzle. Looks like a hipster pattern hahaha.

I'm excited to study more math and create more fun things! Math is fun ♡
