The Artist's Comments on Evolute Stripes

This is the first image in a series of three presented at the celebration of the hundredth birthday of Prof. Dirk Struik. On September 23, 1994, at Brown University, Prof. Struik gave his own centenary lecture "Mathematicians I Have Known", and the gallery includes a photograph of him during that event. Each of the three images that were presented to Prof. Struik was developed during the summer of 1994 by teams of students working at Brown.

The final image of the three presents a study of the evolute surfaces of a right helicoid. This view was created by Cathy Stenson, in connection with her research on the mathematics of DNA coiling.
