Yet to be discovered and never-before-seen images lie dormant under the shallow stream of our imagination, waiting only to be unearthed if we care to wade in and explore. Like an infant exploring beach side, every time I turn a pebble covered in sand, I am fascinated to find new creatures. Mathematics combined with esthetics serves as a marvelous tool to further my understanding of Universe and its complex spatial orders, not to mention the grand intention of its Designer. I am only glad to take a part in it.

A polygon formed using arcs is offset both inwardly and outwardly. Outward offsetting results in the pattern propagating like gentle wave while the inward one created rather unpredictable variation of the initial polygon, converging into the center. The incremental linear change creates soothing effect to eyes.

A rather complex but pleasant looking pattern is created by offsetting a closed polygon formed using several arcs. A copy of the pattern is then scaled down or up only by fraction and these two patterns are superimposed around the same center, creating a Moire-like interference. A hidden pattern emerges!
