the math lesson- julie cockburn

16 Mar

this is precisely what my brain looks like when exposed to maths- a polygonal mess of fractious, repetitious stuff.

although, well, my brain is probably a lot less pretty than julie cockburn‘s work.

numbers and i: we’ve had a rocky relationship after i forgot to do square roots one summer when i was in third grade. but really, deeply, i admire your abstract beauty and your ability to disconcert accountants worldwide.

anyway, cockburn is now being represented by the photographers’ gallery in london, where you can get your hands on her prints.
