I enjoy creating art, film, sculpture, poetry, music and literature that draws inspiration from mathematics, builds connections between ideas and helps reveal mathematical structure in everything around us.
Mockingjay Changes
Mike Naylor
Change ringing is a performance art wherein church bells are rung to play every possible permutation of notes. We use an algorithm to generate all of the permutations of the 4-note "mockingjay song" whistled in the film "The Hunger Games", and use these permutations to create a melody.
