Abstract

The following is my personal exploration of Noguchi’s sculpture inspired by what I do most of the time: math, or playing with numbers. His sculpture is very geometric; it lends itself to mathematical explorations, and I decided to look for a mathematical message in it.

I think Skyviewing Sculpture is really beautiful, and I have also encountered a lot of beautiful things in math, so the natural thing was to look for a connection: the beautiful sculpture giving rise to beautiful math. This is a short report of what I found. There is much more to be discovered, and these are the first findings.
