The journal Critical Interventions has published a special issue of articles responding to the work of RPI professor Ron Eglash. Edited by Audrey Bennett (RPI professor of graphic design), the contributions come from a truly global array of locations--Asia, Africa, Europe and the US—and include textile artist Judy Bales on fractals in African American quilt patterns, ethnomusicologist Martin Scherzinger on self-similarity in mbira music, and architect Xavier Vilalta on contemporary African buildings inspired by fractal design. These and other articles from the special issue are available for download at:
