Maths is often abstract and hard to visualise when presented as numbers and equations, yet is crucial to our precise understanding of our world. These computer-generated artworks are visual displays of mathematical patterns and structures. The Lorenz attractor is a visualisation of the Lorenz attractor, a set of solutions of a system of ordinary differential equations derived from a simplified model for atmospheric convection, developed by Edward Lorenz in 1963. Natalina Cafra is a visualisation of a Natalina cafra shell derived from a mathematical model developed by M.B. Cortie in the paper â€śModel for mollusc shell shapeâ€ť (1989).
