MANDALA IV    ROOT 2 RECTANGLE

1998

49 x 40

 

The more rectilinear aspects of the mandala inspire this quilt. 

 

The square root of two is an irrational number, not at all expressible as a finite, rational decimal number.  But it can be determined exactly and easily by simply delineating the diagonal of a square of side 1. 

 

Further, it is one of several proportions that self replicates in ever-increasing or ever-decreasing sizes. 

 

All the rectangles in this quilt are root-2 rectangles, having been generated by the first one drafted.
