Abstract

In several previous articles I have described polynomiography as the art and science of visualization in approximation of zeros of complex polynomials. Polynomiography amounts to a colorful two-dimensional image, called a polynomiograph, created via a prototype polynomiography software that could typically allow a great deal of human creativity and control. In this article I describe several types of 2D and 3D artwork that could be inspired by polynomiography. These include work of art as paintings, tapestry designs, carpet designs, animations, sculptures, neon light-like polynomiographs, and more. The realization of some of these applications as serious work of art takes coordinated effort, collaborations, and support. I will report on progress in the realization of some of the above-mentioned artwork.
