What do you see?

I really don't know what else to say about this picture.  I would really like to just know what you see and what you think about the piece.

What catches your eye first?  
What do you think is the most creative part?

Don't trip

So I saw this picture online and thought that I would share it with you.

So what do you think this is?  Would you be able to be in a room like this?  Would you want to have a room like this?

When a line travels

Until a few days ago I thought the following picture was someones idea of being very creative with a continuous line. It wasn't until I read into it that I learned it is actually a very old joke that had turned into an art form.  Yes, a traveling salesmans joke.

It turns out that traveling salesmen would map out the routes they had either walked or traveled and the started to see that they were forming artwork on their maps depending on how their European streets were mapped out.

Of course these pieces are not the route someone has walked.  This is the artwork someone has created from the TSP (traveling salesmen's Problem).  They are one continuous line that weaves in and around.  In fact it might be the best mazes in the world.  Since none of the lines ever touch.

Do you think you could find the beginning or the end of these lines?  Would this be a project you would ever like to try?  Do you think you could do it?

If you want to see more look up TSP art.

First Day

The first day can mean different things to different people.  Some love the first day and they can't wait for it, while others are filled with fear and dread of the unknown.

What were your feelings on the first day?  Were you excited, scared or nervous.  What are you looking forward to this year?
