Over the last few years I've moved from creating images to debug codes to an active interest in mathematical art. I am particularly interested in creating visualizations of data and of mathematical structures, and more broadly in the creation of art directly from code.

It has long been observed that a logarithmic spiral describes a snail shell quite well. I created this image as part of a series of pieces based upon logarithmic spirals.

The image is an extreme close-up of four of the hundredth roots of unity. The colors create level sets of the magnitude of z^100-1; each color ramp is a factor of two.
