Mathematical Imagery by Jos Leys

Looms

Clifford A.Pickover in his book "Keys to Infinity" has a chapter entitled "The loom of creation",in which he describes webs spun on a circular frame. One end of the wires is tied at regular intervals, but the other end moves at a different pace.The images below are made along this principle. See also "Mygalomorph Patterns" on Mr.Pickover's pages.
