Math in Design II

Daniel Piker of Space Symmetry Structure has various investigations in design rooted in mathematical concepts. Let me highlight a couple.

Check out his medial surfaces between link components. Below is Piker’s image of the medial surface between the components of the Whitehead link.

Also an interesting read is his discussion of Rheotomic surfaces and structures arising from conformal maps. Here’s an image of Piker’s from that post.
