Jenny Collins

At first glance a soft realistic animal with perfect geometric hard lines indicate contrast, duality, yin/yang, or opposing ideas. But in actuality, math is in everything, it is everything in our visible and even invisible world. Art is actually just geometry and shapes and sizes and proportions and gradients that convey information/emotion/feelings via light energy, just like music is just frequencies and wavelengths that convey information/emotion/feelings via sound energy . Math, however, is a man-made measuring and comparing system that we created as a tool. It has nothing to do with nature directly, only our perspective of nature. This really brings up a deeper subject, which is self-awareness. Only self-aware (self-conscious) beings can create something like math and perfect geometry. Perfect circles and straight lines rarely happen in the natural world, even planets are slightly spherical.
