Mathematical Genius - The Art of Bathsheba Grossman

Saturday, December 31, 2011

According to Bathsheba Grossman, her art is about life in three dimensions: working with symmetry and balance, getting from the origin to infinity, and always finding beauty in geometry.

Her work has been featured on TV's Numb3rs, and Heroes.

Using a background in mathematics and computer programming, Grossman creates intricate and complicated designs. 3D printing in metal her my main medium - in many cases this is the only way her creations could be instantiated. Traditional sculpture technology simply doesn't operate on un-moldable objects.

Selling her designs through Shapeways and her site, Grossman's pieces are widely available, as she eschews the limited editions common in tradional art-making.  Croudsourcing lets Grossman pursue her dream and continue to produce these facinating pieces.

You can see more of the artist's work (and even purchase some) at or at her Facebook page.
