‘Do prime numbers contain keys to the next generation of Islamic Geometric Art?’ is a question posed by Stefan Samociuk, and addressed in his forthcoming exhibition at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David, Lampeter West Wales, 22-26 August 2016.

He hopes that  better awareness of his work could lead to a collaborative project ‘of scholars , interested in geometric art, prime number theory and supercomputers’.

If you could look inside a prime number, would you be surprised if you saw geometric patterns reminiscent of Arabic art through the millennia? If you were, maybe you shouldn’t be. Numbers and geometry are often cited as the foundations of Islamic geometric art. Generated from simple forms of circle and square, geometric patterns are combined, duplicated, interlaced, and arranged into intricate combinations adhering to precise numerical ratios

Stefan was born in Yorkshire UK, and graduated in Physics from Lancaster University. He has worked in the field of computer graphics and headed a specialist group, SOFRIG, running computer centres servicing the computer graphics needs of oil exploration companies around the world.  For further details click here.
