A metaphoric bridge between math and art suggests that math is on one side, and art is on the other. This doesn't mean that mathematicians and artists are on different sides, but that there are separate mindsets or modalities. The introduction of the multi-touch user interface offers a new connection between math and art. To illustrate, we show how a new application helped discover new geometric forms and has posed interesting questions.
