JMM 2021 Supplemental Page
Welcome JMM attendees!
Thanks for your deeper interest in my JMM Mathematical Art Exhibition submission, "Madar-i-Shah Reconstruction".
If you really want to take a deep dive into understanding the geometry of this piece, as well as the challenges and rewards of drawing such a complex pattern by hand, I encourage you to read the paper I wrote for the Bridges 2020 conference all about the creation of this piece. It walks through both a computer reconstruction of the piece as well as my manual process for recreating it, and compares and contrasts the two methods.
If you have even more questions after reading the paper, please contact me, I'd love to chat about it!
