I am a high school student currently enrolled in a math art seminar. So far I've enjoyed exploring the connections between those two things that I used to think were separate.

While this piece loosely resembles New York's Manhattan skyline, it is a depiction of a Riemann sum approximation. Buildings instead of rectangles or trapezoids approximate the area under the integral curve. The sky tones follow the sinusoidal curve that the buildings fill. It is not a regular sine integral though, but with transformations to lessen the intensity of each maximum or minimum and to slightly vary the heights of each too, making it more like the city.
