Living With Geometric Art

Venezuelan artist, Rafael Araujo, has an art series called Calculation. Araujo uses mathematical calculations for geometric patterns to determine the coordinates for his art objects. Art objects are drawn on a background with lines connecting the coordinates.  His art subjects are derived from nature and in insects such as butterflies.  Calculation reflects the geometry underlying many behaviors and forms found in nature.
