Susan Happersett: "My Chaos Theory drawings illustrate the underlying patterns and order within what appears at first to be complete disorder or 'Chaos.' I achieve this effect by making a simple pattern through numerous iterations using a stencil. The extra space in the stencil that allows my pen to move freely creates a small margin of error which over the course of the iterations creates the cloud like chaotic patterns" Susan Happersett, blog: "My fascination with mathematics and my love of visual arts has led me on a journey to build a link between mathematics and drawing. It has become my mission to express the intrinsic aesthetic value of Mathematics in a purely visual language. I use a number of graphing and geometric plotting techniques to examine the aesthetic characteristics of functions, sequences, and series in a visual language. My drawings are an intense accumulation of lines and mark making resulting from my predisposition to counting. Through the years my drawing has become a type of meditation. "In my Chaos Theory-inspired drawings, I illustrate the order and pattern within the seemingly chaotic mass of lines. I spent many months making a stop motion video of the creation of a Chaos drawing. I would have to step away from the drawing after every line. This pause in drawing made me look at the work in progress and at numerous times I realized that the drawing was visually interesting throughout its creation. So I decided to make a book where you could see the drawing at different stages. I created a series of hand-drawn books, but my most recent Chaos project is a letterpressed edition Box of Chaos published by Purgatory Pie Press in NYC. Box of Chaos consists of four folded paper structures illustrating 8 phases of chaos."
