Mathematicians and artists continue to create stunning works in all media and to explore the visualization of mathematics--origami, computer-generated landscapes, tessellations, fractals, anamorphic art, and more
 

Seifert Surfaces

Some years ago, my colleague Arjeh Cohen asked me if I could visualize a Seifert surface. I quickly became fascinated with these strange and difficult surfaces. Seifert surfaces are orientable surfaces, bounded by a knot or link. Their shapes are real-world and not abstract, but also strange and difficult to comprehend. Therefore, I developed a tool called SeifertView to define and display these fascinating mathematical objects.
