Mathematicians and Scientists! Would you like to have your concept or idea rendered in a tapestry? You now have the unique opportunity to own a visual representation of what you have spent years doing. Donna Loraine has created many tapestries based on mathematical and scientific concepts. In 2014, she is reaching out to mathematicians and scientists to collaborate in creating visual models of complex and beautiful constructs. She is intrigued by the idea of representing your work in a tapestry , whether it is DNA chain or a Mathematical proof. Her recent work was highlighted in 2013 in both the American Craft Magazine http://craftcouncil.org/magazine/article/number-crunchers and the Scientific American Magazine http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=bridging-the-gap , both showing her tapestry entries into the BRIDGES Art and Math Exhibit http://bridgesmathart.org/bridges-2012/2012-art-exhibition/ . You can bring your knowledge and passion to bear in a piece that will be a beautiful work of art just for you. Because this will be *your* piece, you can commission it to reflect your specific size and color requirements. If you have a life’s work that you would love to see rendered in this astonishing art form, please contact Donna Loraine to discuss it further.
