The Perfect in Nature is a portfolio of 22 images. These images concern the interplay of the mathematiclly perfect (theory) with the chaotic situations encountered in nature. As a scientist, my eyes and mind have been trained to respond to patterns in the natural world. These patterns result from the response of complex systems to physical laws, whose ultimate expression is cast in mathematical form. Mathematical forms — be they equations or geometrical constructs — evoke a sense of beauty, much like a poem or symphony. But the world of nature, while shaped by physical laws, is inherently chaotic. My goal in this series of images is to use the worlds of mathematical perfection and beauty to show the equally profound beauty of the natural world.
