Knot 4.1

November 2023 – Limited edition Screen prints of Mathematical Knots. In Math, the theory of knots deals with inextricable knots. The simplest mathematical knot is a ring. Two mathematical knots are identical if you can transform one knot into the other by pushing and pulling without cutting the ring open.

Mathematical knots are classified by the number of crossings in the knot. There are no knots with one or two crossings, one with three crossings, and one with four. There are seven knots with seven crossings and twenty-one with eight. There are over 1.3 million knots with sixteen crossings. New knots are still being discovered, like galaxies in the universe.
