'A History of Mathematics' explores the life cycle of maths from its 20000 BC to today. Each image symbolises and honours an important invention or discovery in the history of mathematics. Mathematical knowledge and the ability to use it is the most important means of tackling quantifiable problems. It is essential in many fields, including art.
The cycle starts with the Ishango bones, the oldest table of prime numbers (20000 BC) and goes to modern mathematics which is represented by the binary code. The binary code (invented in 1689) is a way to convert verbal logic statements into mathematical ones. Nowadays it is the language of computers. And just if someone is wondering, the binary code in this image spells 'maths'. I hope you enjoy this artful journey into mathematics?
