Idea-nets and uniqueness of US inaugural addresses

Posted by & filed under Art, Code, Community, Computation, Data, Graphics, Linguistics, Wolfram, Wolfram Language.

What is common between a symphony and a novel? They both progress linearly in time. This is why songs match lyrics and music so well. This seems obvious but comprehension of spacial objects is different. You can look at a two-dimensional painting and your sense of art is driven by the simultaneous perception of different […]

Interactive 3D Calabi-Yau Surface

Posted by & filed under 3D, Code, Demonstrations Project, Graphics, Mathematica, Sketchfab, Wolfram, Wolfram Language.

Wolfram Language allows creation of computational 3D models. These are different from those you can build with your own hands such as SketchUp etc, because computations are often intrinsically different from the way humans see and think. Let’s take for example Calabi-Yau Surface. It is a mathematical object and it is hard to imagine it. […]

ASCII Tree

Happy ASCII New Year ;-)

Posted by & filed under Art, CDF, Code, Graphics, Mathematica, Wolfram, Wolfram Language.

I can occasionally appreciate a nice ASCII art design. But the better is the design, the more manual and custom approach it needs – or so it seems. It is actually quite challenging, if you think about it, to transform a known image or shape to a limited medium using finite set of geometries. So […]

Sin Tree

t * sin (t) = Christmas tree

Posted by & filed under Art, Code, Community, Graphics, Mathematica, Wolfram, Wolfram Language.

Another code sample from Wolfram Community. I noticed that a discussion about programming a lighted Christmas Tree from a simple equation t*Snt[t] became very popular on Reddit. It is connected to a project a programmer developed. I thought how fast we can make it with Wolfram language? Here is the result with slight flickering 😉 […]

Complex numbers, beautiful surfaces and Mathematica

Posted by & filed under Code, Graphics, Mathematica, Wolfram.

A few lines of code in Mathematica can produce beautiful images. Take as an example this simple but spectacular result of singularities in complex plane: Plot3D[Im[Sec[(x + I y)^4]], {x, -2, 2}, {y, -2, 2}, Mesh -> None, ClippingStyle -> None, PlotStyle -> Directive[Orange, Opacity[.8], Specularity[White, 20]], PlotPoints -> 50]
