Fibonachess is a chess game that highlights many of the math concepts that can work together and help us understand the nature of math. These include the Fibonacci sequence, the pythagorean theorem, fractals, platonic solids, and the Klein bottle.

Creative Writing: Fractal Edition


Essentially, I wrote a story, within a story, within a story, mirroring a self similar fractal. Additionally, I illustrated this by drawing the main character within herself three times.

The Platonics


For my creative project I created a rap song centered around the 5 Platonic Solids. Through the lyrics of my song I speak and explain what the basics are of the platonic solids and what makes them unique from other solids.

Natural fractals painting


For my project, I created a painting of the Barnsley fern fractal. In the final product, three iterations of the fractal are visible. Each main stem has 10 branches extending from it. As you zoom in on the image, you will see the same shape repeat itself.

Emma’s Berry college social network


This project is a physically representation of my social network analysis at Berry college. This graph is a tree map that connects me and all my friends. It is color coded as to where I met my friends and they all have an “Emma Number” next to their names

Chaos Theory Shown Through Painting By Numbers


I used Chaos Theory through the Painting By Numbers pallet. I took the original paint pallet and moved it two numbers down to the right, so that the colors in the second painting would be different than the first, creating chaos.

The Beloved Sun


I wanted to represent myself with the symbol of a sun using fractals. The city where I am from in Venezuela is known as the "Land of the Beloved Sun" because it is summer there all-year long. The images of the sun create a pattern that is repeated forever

Stained Glass Fractals


I wanted to showcase the complexities and beauty of fractals by making faux stained glass. Fractals are complex geometric patterns that are self-similar and infinitely detailed. I used plexiglass, sharpie, and glass paint to create my pieces.

Fractals, Feathers, and Fibonaccis!


This project displays the elements of fractals and Fibonacci spirals all in one. Since bird feathers are real-life fractals, through a graphite and watercolor piece, I illustrated how they all can connect to one another. This helps to visualize concepts.

Creative Project


For my creative project, I began with beading the fractal of Sierpinski’s carpet. Afterward, I created my own fractal of beads where I made a pattern starting in 2x2, then upgraded the grid to 4x4, and finally 16x16.

Meditating with the Five Platonic Solids


For my project, I used the five platonic solids and connected them with sacred geometry. In platonic, Indian, and Pythagorean traditions all of the solids are used for meditation. Each shape represents a different element of the world and I painted them.

Fractal Fun


For my creative project, I decided to bead Sierpinski’s Carpet, as well as create my own fractal. For my fractal, I began with a 2x2 bead grid and made up a pattern. I then moved to 4x4, then 16x16. I only used two colors so the pattern was well seen.
