Life of the Mind: Ergo My Lego (article)

From the Mathematical Association of America comes this piece by Andrew Lipson about his mathematical Lego sculptures. After paying tribute to Lego sculptures by others, Lipson goes on to say that "for some reason it didn't seem to have occurred to anyone to make abstract sculptures from LEGO, let alone anything mathematical." The colorful photos of his sculptures are accompanied by descriptions of what he went through to create them. A link at the bottom takes you to Lipson's full website with many more sculptures, including a number that copy various M.C. Escher drawings. <>
