This presentation focuses on the visual component of a geometry problem extracted from a 18th century Japanese Sangaku woodcarving. It combines information of a scientific nature with digital visualization practices to create an esthetically appealing statement. It is part of a larger narrative submitted to the Bridges 2012 conference along with 3 original Sangaku for the Art exhibition and a related animated film for the Short Movie Festival.
