Maths and Computing Brooch 2.png

Pattern of Thought by Veronika Fábián

“Made from gold punched tape, the brooch reflects the fields of maths and computing. Punctured tape was used by computer scientists to send text-based messages, and later for storing data. The brooch is an elegant piece with a powerful message, decoding the series of holes on the brooch reveals sentences from three Suffragette banners; ‘Deeds not words’, ‘Courage Constancy Success’ and ‘Through thick & thin we n’er give in.’”

Mathematical Beauty by Emine Gulsal

“Engraved on the inside curve is what many mathematicians consider to be the most beautiful of all mathematical equations, eiπ+1= 0. The bracelet symbolises the infinite, symmetrical qualities of circles. Encapsulated inside the outer curve is a single, isolated pearl, which can move in a continuous circular motion. I feel that my piece conveys a sense of power and strength within women.”
