Content Description

"Color-reversing patterns are also called 2-color patterns, because you can make them with just two colors. Why stop at two? First I turned a photo (of a beautiful steak and a smear of yams) into a collage where the colors shift by a third of the hue wheel when you turn it by 120°. Then I used a particular mathematical formula to make a pattern where the whole pattern has that same property: You can turn it 120° about various points and all the colors shift hue perfectly. Of course, it’s crazy to look at." Exhibition: SymmetryScapes West: an exhibition of mathematical art.
