In this insightful book, which is a revisionist math history as well as a
revisionist art history, Tony Robbin, well known for his innovative computer
visualizations of hyperspace, investigates different models of the fourth
dimension and how these are applied in art and physics. Robbin explores the
distinction between the slicing, or Flatland, model and the projection, or
shadow, model. He compares the history of these two models and their uses and
misuses in popular discussions. Robbin breaks new ground with his original
argument that Picasso used the projection model to invent cubism, and that
Minkowski had four-dimensional projective geometry in mind when he structured
special relativity. The discussion is brought to the present with an exposition
of the projection model in the most creative ideas about space in contemporary
mathematics such as twisters, quasicrystals, and quantum topology. Robbin
clarifies these esoteric concepts with understandable drawings and diagrams.
Robbin proposes that the powerful role of projective geometry in the development
of current mathematical ideas has been long overlooked and that our attachment
to the slicing model is essentially a conceptual block that hinders progress in
understanding contemporary models of spacetime. He offers a fascinating review
of how projective ideas are the source of some of today’s most exciting
developments in art, math, physics, and computer visualization.
