This text analyzes my interest in and my attempts at integrating perceptual effects into representational imagery for the purposes of artistic expression. Beginning with an explanation of the... More > philosophical foundation I have come to adopt as an artist, Ayn Rand's philosophy of Objectivism, I explain the relationship Objectivism has to my studio practice. Next I analyze discoveries made in the field of Gestalt psychology as a means of scientifically understanding perceptual effects. These explanations are then tested by comparing them to examples of "Op Art"--designs famous for exhibiting these effects. I then discuss representational style by means of examples from the history of art under the lens of gestalt psychology. And lastly, I analyze my own successes and failures in my attempts to integrate these effects into my own representational artwork. An appendix documents my experiments in creating and understanding perceptual effects.< Less

Understanding Imaginaries Through Hidden Numbers By Rodney Rawlings

This essay describes a way of finding hypercomplex numbers—ones that extend complex numbers to more dimensions—with only basic algebra plus Ayn Rand’s philosophy, Objectivism. The... More > result has implications for mathematics and the philosophy of science. The “RADN numbers” (known by science under another name) have a property of rotation like complex numbers, and are also commutative/distributive. (Division is deemed less crucial.) The author of UITHN asked himself what exactly numbers are, how they arise in our mind, and what their relation to reality is. But these questions were so fruitful only because he used a correct philosophy. Another philosophy, such as Karl Popper’s, would not have worked. This has two implications: Rand’s philosophy has epistemological truth; and the RADN numbers may have unique significance. May spur thought on mathematics, addition, multiplication, dimensions, imaginary units, and dimensioned numbers, and lead to more appreciation of Rand’s ideas.< Less
