 \bf{}Mathematics and Art : The film series 
  It is objected that art has nothing to do with mathematics; that mathematics, beside being by its very nature as dry as dust and as unemotional, is a branch of speculative thought and as such in direct antithesis to those emotive values inherent in aesthetics... 
  And here is the definition of what must be a mathematical approach to the arts: Ït must not be supposed that an art based on the principles of mathematics, such as I have just adumbrated, is in any sense the same thing as a plastic or pictorial interpretation of the latter.
