When working with mathematical or algorithmic art, it is inevitable that someone else is using similar techniques. However, this does not mean that the results are the same. By chance I went to an exhibition of the sculptural work of the artist John Pickering, whose work revolves around a mathematical transformation called inversion. I have used inversion, both in the plane and space. This paper compares results and techniques.
