Where do math and metaphor meet? The process of using one thing in place of another (mathematically expressed as x = y) is the application of metaphor, a powerful associative tool that can unite otherwise unrelated elements. In juxtaposing folk tales and planar geometry, I’m pushing these disparate elements to interact: the geometry becomes a metaphor for, and thus illustrative of, the text.
