— It would be nice if you guys worked with Mathematica folks to help them improve their graphics import/export (and PDF!) because they need it. I would love to see Adobe showcase more math and art stuff too. I enjoy the math and the art together deeply for thats the real whole picture via Da Vinci. 😉
I too some time ago became interested in juxtaposing a mathematical graphic on a photograph. The best I was able to accomplish with a spiral generator utility I wrote for AutoCAD was this composite:
I found for instance that the 3d logarithmic spiral routinely touted as being a match for natural evolving form only fit certain portions of a nautilus shell. Which is why I never posted that idea, since it never quite panned out as advertised.
[Interesting stuff, Richard–thanks. –J.]
