Moiré GIF: by Opal

My daughter started playing with moiré in procreate after I fiddled with it in a previous post. You know we breathe math in our home. She wanted to share:

Hex-a-Sierpinski

So I doodled and was pleasantly surprised when Sierpinski-like triangles formed. I am sure that a million people have discovered this before me, but I felt like I found a magic portal.

And that lead to coding (of which is currently a mess, and I will post later).

And one more version:

Popping Apollonian Gasket

I doodled this GIF after two days of painting the canvas below. I think I am in the process of preparing for my fall classes and students. Art is definitely an outlet – especially when it’s math + art.
