The Shape of Nature:  Bees, Trees, Oragami

The renaissance was a time when art and science were not polar opposites, but extensions of one another.  With the advent of the enlightenment era, a dualistic tension between the visual arts and scientific research was introduced.  Today, the study of nature is serving as a bridge between these worlds once again.  Heavily infused with imagery, we look at wonderful examples at the intersection of art, visualization, and research mathematics.
