The Australian Maths Art Project by Anthony Jones

About the project:

…from a leading Australian Mathematician and Economist, investigating connections between art, its history and the worlds of mathematics and economics. Fibonacci, Grid systems, The Golden Section, perspective, proportion, Euclid… these and many other points of reference became subject matter for the works.
