My godmother used to quip that the cheapest way to renovate any home was with a fresh set of throw pillows and a new coat of paint. Well, we’ve got you covered, so to speak, with throw pillows.
When our son brought home his interest in irrational numbers and mathematical theorems, his excitement was contagious. His knowledge far outstrips mine, but I shared his fascination with Pi as a middle schooler. It is really fun to think of numbers unfurling in space, marching out beyond imagination and light. I also rediscovered e or Euler’s number while reading Margot Lee Shetterly’s Hidden Figures. In a scene in the celebrated movie, the protagonist Katherine Johnson used Euler’s number to calculate the trajectory of John Glenn’s space capsule on a blackboard. That moment inspired me to plot the numbers of e using a color algorithm – my own take on a color trajectory. I wanted to engage numbers in a new way and found there was an architecture, a different kind of reveal as I painted row after row of squares that looked like chiclets. I found cadence in irrationality and a new correspondence with color.
