Found Functions: Math in the Garden


 

Searching for fractals in the landscape is by now common, but Nikki Graziano, a student in both math and photography at the Rochester Institute of Technology has expanded the hunt to include functions.  When she "finds a function" in nature, she uses a graphing package to generate (something close to) its mathematical equivalent, and overlays it on the photograph for a new way of seeing.  (Thanks, Ryan!)

WOW. This is an entirely new concept to me. . . so I just can't stop staring at these photographs.
