My (accepted!) submissions to the 2014 Joint Mathematics Meetings Exhibition of Mathematical Art:


Labyrinths. Each of the 25 squares is a rotationally symmetric labyrinth on a 65x65 grid. Each path starts at the upper left and finishes at the lower right. The labyrinths were created by taking random walks in the space of all such labyrinths. These were inspired by an idea of Chuck Hulse.


Manifold. The Kazhdan-Lusztig polynomials are a particularly rich family of polynomials arising from representation theory and the geometry of the flag manifold that I am attempting to understand combinatorially. This image depicts the reciprocals of the roots of the 726,636 distinct Kazhdan-Lusztig polynomials associated to the exceptional Coxeter group H_4. The positive x-axis is pointing directly up. Shading is derived from the density of roots.
