ButanglasanimationRicard Marxer Piñón is an artist who combines the mathematics of signal processing with the esthetics of font, fotos and sound. On a highly abstract level he e.g. uses reduced letters to create new shapes out of words.

The animation on the right side is a processed picture of burning gas in a glass. He is also working with the (to me, until now, unknown) programming language Processing I recommend his highly entertaining website ricardmarxer.com.
