Mathematikoi by arctoa Mathematikoi by arctoa
Updated 21/01/2008 @ 23:05


This particular shot was taken inside the foyer of Bradford's National Media Museum during a college trip down there in December 2008. There was an installation hanging from the ceiling that caught my eye and this is the resulting depiction of my initial impressions.

Title inspiration this time comes from the name of one of the two schools of thought within the Pythagorean sect, where they were known as the learners. The other school called themselves the Akousmatikoi, the listeners. Pythagoras, of course, was the ancient Greek philosopher partly responsible for the formation of the theorem that bears his name.

Comments are perpetually appreciated.

Fantastic composition! Almost an abstraction. So graphic and great delicate grey tones!
