I work in the intersection of art and mathematics. I like to experiment and see what comes of it. I usually start with a mathematical stimulus and play with the idea through several artistic iterations. Usually the artistic process is in itself interesting and when the finished product is pleasing, it is a bonus.

This is an artistic exercise to list the ways in which 7 continuous loops can be drawn so that no two loops intersect. I found 115 ways to make these loops.
