"Pandemania Day 114, Recursive Forms II - Mandala 070820." Wednesday. I'm in the beginning stages of a new "creative investigation" project. My creative passion plays out in integrating science and the creative arts. I’m enjoying the research. Believe the science!
"…forms and shapes found in nature exhibit some form of self-similarity; the larger form appears to contain smaller copies of itself at different scales. Examples abound in the plant world; we see it also in mountains, clouds, the branching structure of rivers and blood vessels, patterns on animal skins, etc. Nature imposes restrictions on growth rules, but that doesn't mean that the artist needs to." (Recursion in Nature, Mathematics and Art, Anne M. Burns, Department of Mathematics, Long Island University) Note: Each Pandemania Series Mandala is accompanied by a journal entry that serves as its statement.
