“A differential equation is a mathematical equation that relates some function with its derivatives. In applications, the functions usually represent physical quantities, the derivatives represent their rates of change, and the equation defines a relationship between the two.

In pure mathematics, differential equations are studied from several different perspectives, mostly concerned with their solutions—the set of functions that satisfy the equation. Only the simplest differential equations are solvable by explicit formulas; however, some properties of solutions of a given differential equation may be determined without finding their exact form.” wikipedia

Science and art have a lot in common, one of this similarity is this possibility to explore different approaches of the same topic. In this project I was interested to explore the possibilities of a composition of elements and to create with it a kind of layout. This layout is organized according to the different materiality of this elements and their visual qualities. During the process emerged a clear structure related to the deferents possibilities of the layout in the space. The feeling of a scientific experience came from this quest for a solution, looking for the perfect combination and balance of elements. A composition/solution, that we can perceive from different perspectives.
