Don't really know where to begin with this work. I picked up a book while randomly browsing the library at Beaubourg, Centre Pompidou. I trust this process, and patience pays off when you discover something so striking and inspiring. As suspected, I'm not the only one who loves his work so here are some images and sources for more information and examples of his work.
My favorite fact is that he founded and taught at MIT at the Center for Advanced Visual Studies. Not all art is fluff.
please also see this article from the NYTimes for further discussion into the scientific value of his work
