Trying to Interpret Modern Art as a Finite-Element Practitioner

Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa
In this essay, our main aim is to identify the similarities between the techniques used by the 19th and 20th century painters, and scientists dealing with the Finite-Difference/Finite-Element methods. First, we discuss the concept of representation in art, together with its mathematical formulation. We next formulize the perception, and conclude with a discussion about the analogies between artistic movements and some concepts of the Finite-Element Method.
