CrumpledCortex

Abstract Scientific & Mathematical Peculiarities

Derry, New Hampshire 0 Sales On Etsy since 2014

Announcement   Colorful images of strange phenomena from fractals to flowers to fungi to fireworks and thin film interference. Check back in a few weeks for the first 3d printed items.

If you like my work (or you know someone who might), but you're not interested in digital downloads, check back in a few weeks when I get printing and shipping details worked out!

And if you're interested in 3d printing I'll be adding various 3d printed jewelry and decorative items in the near future as well.

I really appreciate criticism, so if you want to contact me for any reason, especially if you want to lodge a complaint, I'd be happy to hear from you!

    About

    I never fail to be enthralled by the details of our existence; the abstract language of mathematics, and the lovely world we find ourselves in.

    Drawing on a formal education in math & physics, and a lifelong fixation on everything science-related, along with a heartfelt appreciation for the aesthetic sense & the natural world, Crumpled Cortex exists for me to explore the intricate interface that forms when simplicity degenerates into complexity, both in the abstract and concrete, through art and science — in short, inspiration abounds!

    After graduating from college I worked as an R&D technician and software engineer for four years before deciding that traditional career paths were not for me, so I quit. I spent much of the next few years dabbling with various artistic explorations in photography and computer imagery, (some examples of that work can be seen in the links).

    In photography I tend to focus on very colorful images, often abstract subjects, frequently in the macro range. Flowers, lightning, stars, glowing objects, fireworks, spiderwebs, oil spots, fungi, bubbles, bugs, sparks, eyeballs, hot air balloons and more have been frequent targets of my lens. I've also made videos, typically time lapses or experimental visual effects, (which can be seen in the links).

    My primary interests now are in curved crease origami and 3D printed objects, early attempts can be seen here: https://www.facebook.com/yrast/media_set?set=a.783459419207.2162261.32602905
    and here: http://shpws.me/ri7a

    I use Blender for modeling 3D objects (to be printed &/or cast), often employing Python to generate mathematical objects for further manipulation within Blender. I use Inkscape to draw crease patterns to be scored with a laser cutter, (which my friends Ben & Michelle were very gracious to loan me), and Python for image manipulation and Sage and Grapher for mathematics.

    And now this Etsy shop is (hopefully) a way to share these little pleasantries with everyone else!

      I am thirty-two years old, with a B.Sc. in math-physics from Keene State College in southwestern New Hampshire, and I have been consumed by an obsession with science since at least my earliest memories. I am a naturalist at heart.
