Art & Rheology (Again) but no Puzzles This Time

Last week I posted about a rheological mystery that was presented as art. This week, I also found an artist, Jesse Higman, using resins but in this case, the carefully designed flow of the uncured materials is integral to creation of the art. The website of the artist is full of picture, but short on technical details, but the page devoted to the "Spiral" image shows how the canvas is meticulously distorted from a plane so that the resins flow in the desired shape. It's worth taking a little time to check out the page. Given the disability of the artist, the devotion to the picture (3 years work) is all the more exciting.

A second picture is labeled with "Rheology" on the page header, although I do not explicitly see the connection.
