Slovenian artist Teja Krasek explores the fractal boundaries between art, science, and mathematics.
"Art and mathematics blend and swirl. They conjure images and emotions in unexpected and profound ways -- and allow us to transcend space and time."
Teja Krasek is my favorite living European artist. One of her goals is to unite science, mathematics, and art. Her works have been featured at international exhibitions. My colleagues consider her Eastern Europe's "MC Escher" and Slovenia's "gift" to the world.
Escher thought big. Buckminster Fuller thought big. But Krasek outdoes them both.
I've known her for years, and we both agree with Sven Carlson's statement:
Art and science will eventually be seen to be as closely connected as arms to the body. Both are vital elements of order and its discovery. The word "art" derives from the Indo-European base "ar", meaning to join or fit together. In this sense, science, in the attempt to learn how and why things fit, becomes art. And when art is seen as the ability to do, make, apply or portray in a way that withstands the test of time, its connection with science becomes more clear.
Teja's favorite equation is
She is also interested in art as means to enhance nanotechnology images. Here are examples of her art pieces:
