Relativity in art

Happy New Year! Day 1, 2015 and I'm trying to read more this year instead of wasting time by scrolling through Facebook and Twitter, searching for the answers to unasked questions that are no use to me.

Colliding Worlds by Arthur I Miller is my new book to start the year. It's about the intersection between art and science - my favourite space to play in. And I'm discovering new artists in this book. Lissitzky - Russian designer/artist working in early part of 20th century - was inspired by relativity and Minkowski's diagrams of the space time continuum. I love this typographic/architecture/science diagram aesthetic.
