Abstract

Generally speaking, all avant-garde movements have had one characteristic in common: belief in the new. It is also true that all of those movements were aware of changes, progress and advances in science. As a consequence, non-Euclidean geometry was considered a manifesto for revolution in the arts. This article discusses the visualization of mathematics--the process of transferring concepts from mathematics to works of art--with examples from the artworks and writings of El Lissitzky and Naum Gabo.
