Stereographic MAA (Artwork)
Stereographic MAA Digital Print 2015

As with the MAA logo, this artwork features the icosahedron. Each face of the icosahedron was patterned with nine lines containing the text MAA 100. The icosahedron was first projected onto the circumscribing sphere and then stereographically projected onto the plane. The resulting transformation maps line segments into circular arcs.
