Art in History

Saturday, April 1, 2006



Q. Why was Pottery used as the art medium for each of your projects?

A. Throughout history archaeologists have used pottery as a basis for dating the civilization and culture of the discovered site. Pottery had a utilitarian use and represented a prized possession used in everyday life. The face of the pottery was like a canvas in which the potters used to express themselves. Therefore the motifs represented the events of the day usually depicting politics, religion, the environment, and the day-to-day life of the time period.

Knot Plot

Monday, March 20, 2006



Here you will find a collection of knots and links, viewed from a (mostly) mathematical perspective. Nearly all of the images here were created with KnotPlot, a fairly elaborate program to visualize and manipulate mathematical knots in three and four dimensions. You can download KnotPlot and try it on your computer (see the link below), but first you may want to look at some of the images in the picture gallery.
