Modern Art


In the hands of two Masters of Science students from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim, Norway math is a creative pursuit. They took what they learned of an algorithm created by Paul Hough in 1962, a system that reveals lines, circles, and ellipses in pictures, and used it to create individualized art that looks as unique as the algorithm behind it.

Called Hough Waves, these photographic prints elegantly express symmetry and structure.

They're available for order in a variety of sizes as a single image or broken in to triptychs, and printed either on canvas or paper mounted on aluminium plates. Colors can be chosen through a java applet on the site and digital mock-ups are available free of charge.
