Free Will or Determinism? The Cage of Freedom

Here is a second painting I made based on the Free Will/Determinism problem. This does not resolve it in any way, of course.

I don't think math as a tool for art is used much these days. Perspective is sort of a "given" to most realist painters and I don't know if it "counts." Otherwise, very few folk are attracted to its use in the arts.

It's really quite disappointing. There could be some fantastic pieces made from a "visualization" of homology chains, or even something more abstract.

The use of the "choose" function, and K_7 as a cage are really novel... Although I think K_5 would be more meaningful in that regard.

I rarely see other painters engage it. Not that my work is so wonderful, but I like to think it attracts those curious about not only the decorative aspect or even the intuitive but also the rational.

Well, there's always Escher, and envelopes of tangents, and ...Google:

Thanks for information, the Escher shirts look interesting and worth a purchase. There is another site with math, physics, and philosophical T-shirts as well: http://www.mathematicianspictures.com/Shirts_.htm
