Dimensions



At this time of year I like to show some of the Dimensions series. Beautifully designed and distributed under a Creative Commons License, the series is free to download and show in class, and gives an excellent overview of projective geometry in two, three, and four dimensions! Incidentally, the animations were created using POV-Ray, a free ray-tracing program that generates photo-realistic images using precise mathematical modeling.
